Research Project: HarmoSearch
HarmoSearch - Harmonised Semantic Meta-Search in Distributed Heterogeneous Databases
Objective of the project HarmoSearch is the analysis and development of a platform-independent search mechanism for tourism services in heterogeneous data bases, based on techniques of the areas semantic web and schema matching. Main research activities are the development of a (semi-) automatic mapping tool, which allows users to generate mappings without any technological knowledge or mapping skills, and a semantic meta-search component, based on a semantic registry, to address scientific issues like mapping of search queries and intelligent routing to appropriate data sources.
