The overall goal addressed in this paper is to improve semantic interoperability in heterogeneous systems by means of establishing mappings between relevant domain ontologies. The mappings are discovered based on the technique of semantic enrichment through extension analysis, i.e. using instance information of the ontology to enrich the original ontology and further to calculate similarities between concepts in two ontologies. Text categorization is used to automatically assign instance to the

Based on the similarities measure, a heuristic method is used to establish mapping assertions for the two ontologies. The method is illustrated using a product catalogue scenario.
