ADVANCED INTERFACE FOR QUERYING GRAPH DATA
Mayes, Stephen Frederick

2008, Master of Sciences, Case Western Reserve University, Computing and Information Science.
Systems with large amounts of data usually have simple and straightforward methods in which users can query the data. However, the simplicity of these methods can lead to a loss of expressive power in exchange for an easier interface which users can quickly grasp and understand. Scientists and other experts can be hindered by an overly simplistic interface that does not allow them to express a full range of queries. Therefore, we propose using an Advanced Query Interface to help knowledgeable users construct meaningful ad-hoc queries without the need for an excessively simplistic or complicated interface. With a user-friendly hierarchical layout of graphical nodes, users can construct queries against sets of semi-structured data. We also propose creating path-based queries on graph data that can be integrated into this interface to expand its scope and so that users may benefit from the experience gained while building queries with the semi-structured data.
