The problem of unification of heterogeneous models of information resources representation including databases, ontologies, services and processes for development of distributed information systems using heterogeneous information resources is considered. Special attention is devoted to the verifiable methods of information model mapping and synthesis of extensible canonical information models. An architecture of Information Model Unifier as well as an example of mapping of specific information model into canonical one are presented. A comparison of proposed methods with known approaches is provided.
