Building a Tourism Information Provider With the MOMIS System


The tourism industry is a good candidate for taking up Semantic Web technology. In fact, there are many portals and websites belonging to the tourism domain that promote tourist products (places to visit, food to eat, museums, etc.) and tourist services (hotels, events, etc.), published by several operators (tourist promoter associations, public agencies, etc.). This article presents how the MOMIS system may be used for building a tourism information provider by exploiting the tourism information that is available in Internet websites. MOMIS (Mediator envirOnment for Multiple Information Sources) is a mediator framework that performs information extraction and integration from heterogeneous distributed data sources and includes query management facilities to transparently support queries posed to the integrated data sources.
