Local tag structures have become frequent through Web 2.0: Users "tag" their data without specifying the underlying semantics. Every user annotates items in an individual way using the own labels. Even if two users happen to use a tag with the same name, it need not mean the same. Moreover, within the collection of a single user, media items are tagged multiply using different aspects, e.g., topic, genre, occasion, mood.
