An Investigation of Techniques for Integrating Web-Accessible Data
William D. Reese
Computer Science PhD Candidate

The proliferation of World Wide Web accessible information sources has introduced the problem of integrating these sources to create unified views over them. Web-accessible data of interest can be customized and tied together in any number of ways using a variety of possible techniques to result in structures known as datawebs. Collaborators and others with a desire for unified views of multiple datawebs face the challenge of being able to integrate such webs without actually exercising any control or ownership over them. Such integration can be simplified when standard dataweb architectures and construction techniques are used.

This thesis explores alternatives for organizing Web-accessible data in ways that make the automated integration of such data possible. It contributes a novel Web Integration Tool, WIT, capable of automating the integration of datawebs as well as mapping integrated results into an alternative, XML-based architecture.
