Exploring schema repositories with schemr
Schemr is a schema search engine, and provides users the ability to search for and visualize schemas stored in a metadata repository. Users may search by keywords and by example ? using schema fragments as query terms. Schemr uses a novel search algorithm, based on a combination of text search and schema matching techniques, as well as a structurally-aware scoring metric. Schemr presents search results in a GUI that allows users to explore which elements match and how well they do. The GUI supports interactions, including panning, zooming, layout and drilling-in. We demonstrate schema search and visualization, introduce Schemr as a new component of the information integration toolbox, and discuss its benefits in several applications.
