Description: The Semantic Tools for Data Management (Semtools) project is tackling critical issues in the management and use of heterogeneous scientific data. Existing approaches to managing data and associated metadata fail to adequately capture the semantics of the scientific process, thereby impeding the utility of those data for important scientific issues. In Semtools, we will provide new capabilities for data access, discovery, integration, and visualization by developing software tools that utilize semantically annotated data and metadata.
