Information Meta View Project
IMV is a peer-based distributed database system accessible over WebDAV/DASL, an extended HTTP protocol. The system allows users to publish their information in a structured format instead of unstructured webpages, making it possible for other users to query it. The data contributed by a user is stored in a graph like structure in his/her datasource. Aggregators are special clients that can collect data from multiple data-sources which may be located at different sites to provide an aggregate view of the data.
The project, now passive, was started by a group of senior undergraduate students of the Maharashtra Institute of Technology, Pune (INDIA) for their bachelor's final project and sponsored by Persistent Systems Pvt. Ltd., a software firm based in Pune (INDIA). You an find more information about the site on the sourceforge project website.
