morph-GFT is an extension of morph-RDB that works with Google Fusion Table (GFT) tables. These tables can be described using R2RML Mappings and enables users to query them using SPARQL. In morph-GFT, SPARQL queries posed by users are translated into SQL-like queries that are supported by the GFT API.

Unlike standard relational database implementations normally used with R2RML, the GFT API does not support join operations. Therefore, the SQL-like queries that can be evaluated directly over the GFT API are rather simple. For this reason, we use SPARQL-DQP [2] to perform joins of intermediate results and then these intermediate results are translated using the R2RML mappings specified by the users. Using SPARQL-DQP brings another benefit: not only can we join the intermediate results from GFT tables, but also from other SPARQL endpoints.
