Collaborative Data Publishing and Searching System
Author(s)Ooi, Beng Chin; Yu, Bei; Li, Guoliang
In this paper, we present a folksonomy-based collaborative data publishing and searching system. The system accepts data objects described with user-created metadata, called data units. The system supports flexible structure on the data units, and places no restrictions on the vocabulary used. We devise a generic table model for storing and representing the data units of various structures. We propose a framework for managing the data units and providing browsing, searching and querying services over them. We present our current approaches and discuss relevant research issues.
