[Objective] Summarize the researches on technical methods and tools of RDB-to-RDF and extract the key technologies. [Coverage] Retrieve English and Chinese literatures related to RDB-to-RDF from database of Elsevier, Springer, CNKI. [Methods] Use literature investigation, summarized by research topic. [Results] Summarize and analyze from the perspective of mapping ideas, techniques and implementation methods, compar­ing important feature and application occasions of mapping tools, and enumerating the typical application. [Limitations] Lack of specific quantitative evaluation when comparing mapping tools. [Conclusions] This study is helpful to understand the related key techniques, tools and main application scenarios in RDB-to-RDF process.
