This paper is dedicated to the issue of automatic mapping from flat or hierarchical metadata schemas to Semantic Web data formats. It proposes a checklist of requirements for such mappings and, based on this checklist, tries to compare functionalities of existing mapping tools. Finally, it introduces jMet2Ont, an open source mapping tool created by PSNC during the SYNAT research project.
