DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEMS IN ONTOLOGY-BASED CONSTRUCTION OF WEB DIRECTORIES

Abstract

The paper proposes an ontology-based mechanism for fully automated development of a Web directory’s structure using the Semantic web as an underlying and integrating principle. Maintenance of a Web directory is a time and resource wise consuming task. Moreover, there is always a realistic risk of the structure becoming unbalanced, uneven and difficult to use to all except for a few users proficient in a particular Web directory. By using ontologies to describe semantics of Web resources and Web directory’s categories, and through the use of ontology mapping, it is possible to construct algorithms that can build or rearrange the structure of a Web directory. Such applications are immediately helpful but also can be useful in the more general problem of ontology sorting.
