Abstract

Information sources over the WWW contain a large amount of data organized according to different interests and values. Thus, it is important that facilities are there to enable users to extract information of interest in a simple and effective manner. To do this, We propose the Wiccap Data Model, an XML data model that maps Web information sources into commonly perceived logical models, so that information can be extracted automatically according to users' interests. To accelerate the creation of data models, we have implemented a visual tool, called the Mapping Wizard, to facilitate and automate the process of producing Wiccap Data Models. Using the tool, the time required to construct a logical data model for a given website is significantly reduced.
