Excerpt: On the Internet you can download some very interesting data sets that computer scientists and others use for scientific or ecnomic reasons. One application, for example, might have the function to test data mining algorithms or even further create new knowledge from the data. In other cases data sets can be used to create mesh-ups. A mesh-up is an application which combines several data sets to create an interesting new peace of information. In this section I will try to collect a bunch of different data sets that are available for download on the Web. In some cases I might…

Webscience Trust is a network in which my my university participates. Professor…
