Visual Web Information Extraction with Lixto

Robert Baumgartner, Sergio Flesca, Georg Gottlob
2001 International Conference on Knowledge Capture  
We present new techniques for supervised wrapper generation and automated web information extraction, and a system called Lixto implementing these techniques [6] .  ...  Our system can generate wrappers which translate relevant pieces of HTML pages into XML.  ...  The final two patterns are string patterns. TESTING THE LIXTO TOOL We chose twelve example sites (Table 1 ), some of which were already used for testing purposes by other wrapper generators.  ...

The Lixto data extraction project

Georg Gottlob, Christoph Koch, Robert Baumgartner, Marcus Herzog, Sergio Flesca
2004 Proceedings of the twenty-third ACM SIGMOD-SIGACT-SIGART symposium on Principles of database systems - PODS '04  
We describe the visual wrapper specification process in Lixto and various practical aspects of wrapping.  ...  Then we present theoretical results on monadic datalog over trees and on Elog, its close relative which is used as the internal wrapper language in the Lixto system.  ...  Then we introduce the core visual specification procedure used in the Lixto wrapper generator [3, 4] . Finally, the Elog wrapping language is presented.  ...

A flight meta-search engine with metamorph

Bernhard Kruepl, Wolfgang Holzinger, Yansen Darmaputra, Robert Baumgartner
2009 Proceedings of the 18th international conference on World wide web - WWW '09  
We show how data can be extracted from web forms (rather than the data behind web forms) to generate a graph of flight connections between cities.  ...  Metamorph provides mechanisms to model web forms together with the interactions which are needed to fulfil a request, and can generate interaction sequences that pose queries using these web forms and  ...  Results are piped into wrappers that were interactively generated on a per-website basis using the Lixto Visual Developer tool.  ...

2004 SIGMOD record  
Acknowledgments This work was supported by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) under project No. Z29-N04 and the GAMES Network of Excellence of the European Union.  ...  Visual Wrapper Specification In this section, we introduce the core visual specification procedure used in the Lixto wrapper generator [2, 3] . Lixto uses a wrapping language called Elog.  ...  These are just two reasons for which wrapping tools need to assist humans to render the creation of wrappers a more manageable task.  ...

Towards building logical views of websites

Zehua Liu, Wee Keong Ng, Ee-Peng Lim, Feifei Li
2004 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
Using the tool, the time required to construct a logical data model for a given Website is significantly reduced.  ...  To enable easy and rapid creation of such data models, we have implemented a visual tool, called the Mapping Wizard, to facilitate and automate the process of producing Wiccap Data Models.  ...  Although DEByE and Lixto both have an expressive user interface for creating wrappers, the tools available are mostly for wrapper generation operations that are of the lowest granularity, i.e. for specifying  ...
