MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this system is to be able to automatically detect when a new world event has occurred using RSS feeds of popular world news websites. This will aid social scientists in their analysis of world trends. This system is being designed specifically for integration with the the IDEAL (Integrated Digital Event Archiving and Library - http://www.eventsarchive.org/) project. The system is a collection of Python scripts each of which fulfills an objective outlined in greater detail in the final report, Section 3, System Architecture.
