Media Watch on Climate Change. Acquiring, managing and applying knowledge are crucial steps in addressing environmental issues, and ensuring that change is conceived and implemented on both regional and society-wide scales. To increase awareness and the availability of environmental information, the Media Watch provides a comprehensive and continuously updated account of media coverage on climate change and related issues. The portal aggregates, filters and visualizes environmental Web content from 150 Anglo-American news media sites.

Contextualized Access of Tourism-Related Electronic Resources (CATER) investigates context-aware information retrieval in the tourism domain. It aims to develop a search module for IDIOM’s contextualized information spaces with advanced disambiguation and query refinement, as well as just-in-time information retrieval agents to identify related material automatically. The results will be displayed via a tightly coupled interface - e.g. query term expansion to locate documents and people related Austrian destinations, and project them onto the Google Earth interface.
