This paper introduces an ontology mapping system that is used with a multi agent ontology mapping framework in the context of question answering. Our mapping algorithm incorporates the Dempster Shafer theory of evidence into the mapping process in order to improve the correctness of the mapping. Our main objective was to assess how applying the belief function can improve correctness of the ontology mapping through combining the similarities which were originally created by both syntactic and semantic similarity algorithms. We carried out experiments with the data sets of the Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative 2006 which served as a test bed to assess both the strong and weak points of our system. The experiments confirm that our algorithm performs well with both concept and property names.
