The main challenge behind the project lies in the great variability of the included data. In order to provide a unified interface(More)
We present the goals and architecture of the Typological Database System, a project for the creation of a unified interface to numerous independently developed typological databases. The aim of the project is to develop a software system that allows a user to simultaneously query different databases through a single interface. The challenge of the project(More)
