The Semantic Web vision introduces the concept of machine-oriented web information. As with any kind of information resources, the web information is characterized by the notion of imperfect information, i.e. uncertainty and vagueness. Towards this notion, an imperfect ontology model for representing uncertain or vague information, as well as an inference method for reasoning about this kind of information is necessary. Our approach faces the aforementioned issues, i.e. the imperfect ontology model and the reasoning approach. In order to achieve this, the Dempster Shafer theory of evidence is applied in both tasks. In order to show how our method performs, an implementation is outlined.
