Ontology-based data access (OBDA) deals with the problem of accessing autonomous data sources through a shared, virtual ontology, and declarative mappings connecting the data sources to the ontology. The W3C standard R2RML allows for mapping relational data sources to RDFS/OWL ontologies. In this paper, we present algorithms for the semantic analysis of R2RML mappings in the OBDA setting, when the ontology is expressed in OWL 2 QL. The focus of such algorithms is to identify the main semantical anomalies (inconsistency and redundancy) of a mapping specification with respect to the ontology and/or the data sources. Such algorithms have been implemented in the mapping analysis tool developed within the Optique European project. We also report on the experiments conducted within the Optique project use cases.
