The massive amount of statistical and text data available from government agencies has created a set of daunting challenges to both research and analysis communities. These problems include heterogeneity, size, distribution, and control of terminology. At the Digital Government Research Center we are investigating solutions to these key problems. In this paper we focus on (1) ontological mappings for terminology standardization, (2) data integration across data bases with high speed query processing, and (3) interfaces for query input and presentation of results.
