Advances in location aware computing and the convergence of geographic and textual information systems will require a comprehensive, extensible, information rich framework called the Information Commons Gazetteer, that can be freely disseminated to small devices in a modular fashion. This paper describes the infrastructure and datasets used to create such a(More)
The authors are listed alphabetically, each author having contributed significantly to the technology described. Abstract This paper describes a peer-to-peer architecture for representing and disseminating linguistic corpora, linguistic annotation, and resources such as lexical databases and gazetteers. The architecture is based upon a 'Universal Database'(More)
We describe a range of designs for supporting rich search queries in a peer-to-peer network. Our implementation is based upon universally identified data objects which are replicated upon request by agents called Shepherds. Several abstract data structures are built upon this framework, supporting dataset management, lexical search, and distributed GIS(More)
The built world increasingly comprises objects with at least some information-processing capability, and these objects are rapidly acquiring the ability to intercommunicate. The problem of how to orchestrate huge numbers of independently designed devices into coherent environments is becoming acute. A pure dataflow programming paradigm is a natural choice(More)
