One continuing problem inherent in the terminology mapping process - whether intellectual or automated - is accurately characterising the type of mapping match found between terminologies. The assumption underpinning mapping is that equivalence can exist between disparate Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) and their respective terminologies; however, exact equivalence is rarely attainable. This brief report summarises terminology mapping and equivalence issues found as part of the Jisc funded High-level Thesaurus (HILT) project (phase III), in particular the match types required to support machine-to-machine (M2M) terminology services.
