RESTful services are increasingly gaining traction over WS-* ones. As with WS-* services, their semantic annotation can provide benefits in tasks related to their discovery, composition and mediation. In this paper we present an approach to automate the semantic annotation of RESTful services using a cross-domain ontology, two semantic resources like DBpedia and GeoNames, and additional external resources (suggestion and synonym services). We also present a preliminary evaluation in the geospatial domain that proves the feasibility of our approach in a domain where RESTful services are increasingly appearing and highlights that it is possible to carry out this semantic annotation with satisfactory results.
