We consider P2P data sharing systems in which each participant uses an ontology to represent information. If all the partipants do not use the same ontology, the system is said to be semantically heterogeneous. Several methods have been proposed to reach a degree of interoperability but thorough evaluation of these methods is prevented by a lack of tools to describe the situations in which they have been tested. In this paper we identify components that impact on the semantic heterogeneneity, and we define several complementary measures to capture the different facets of heterogeneity. Proposed measures allow to characterize the situation in which a method is evaluated, or to measure the heterogeneity reduction produced by another method.
