Ontology mapping is a complex and necessary task for many Semantic Web (SW) applications. The perspective users are faced with a number of challenges including the difficulties of capturing semantics. In this paper we present a three-dimensional ontology mapping model. This model reflects the engineering steps needed to materialise a versatile mapping system in order to meet the demands on semantic interoperability in the SW environment. We solidify the formalisation with specialised algorithms and we analyse their effectiveness and performance by way of benchmark tests.
