However, users' wishes often exceed simple document-oriented inquiries. With respect to complex scientific issues it becomes imperative to aid knowledge gain from huge interdependent and thus hard to comprehend data collections more efficiently. Especially data categories that constitute relationships between two each or more items require potent set-oriented content management, visualization and navigation utilities. Moreover, strategies are needed to discover correlations within and between data sets of independent origin.
