Abstract

The emergence in recent years of initiatives like the Linked Open Data (LOD) has led to a significant increase in the amount of structured semantic data on the Web. In this paper we argue that the shareability and wider reuse of such data can very often be hampered by the existence of vagueness within it, as this makes the data's meaning less explicit. Moreover, as a way to reduce this problem, we propose a vagueness metaontology that may represent in an explicit way the nature and characteristics of vague elements within semantic data.
