Integrated Feeds: LandScan as an analogy of integrating XML feeds into one database for end-user

LandScan provides real time integration of geographic information. This permitting emergency response teams to pinpoint population densities in the wake of the Tsunami.

Mobile phones, text messaging, and browser-based wireless access, end users cannot necessarily be expected to have robust operating systems to integrate various date feeds.

One approach to XML feeds is to integrate data into consolidated feeds.

Rather than rely on an information architecture or server, it is hoped that XML development efforts will springboard into integration efforts that will grab multiple XML feeds, integrate them, and permit end users to manipulate the various feeds into new end-products and data displays.

LandScan shows how various datafeeds can be integrated into composite information.

Features in an XML data integration system include:

- Having the ability to understand changes in data from previous to current editions;

- If needed, apply historical trend information to build of baseline-historical data to forecast likely current status of population densities and geographic positions.

In short, XML feed-integration is more than simply mixing blog-entries from multiple feeds into a single feed. Rather, it can be about allowing the various XML feeds interact with eachother on the end-users chosen platform.

The goal is to move from a heavy-weight information architecture and move to a simple system that seamlessly integrates the XML feeds on the end-users display.

This XML feed integration-concept could be coupled with the "scheduling feeds concept" in personal choices, investment banking, and auditing.

For example XML feed inputs such as anecdotes of police corruption, housing cost trends, and litigation services could be dovetailed into a picture of the community's litigation risks.

Investment bankers could integrate XML feeds such as reported trends, actual indicators, and identify new thresholds or change weightings.

Auditors could integrate XML-feeds related to internal controls, data access, and data updates to identify the various audit risks relative to management goals.

Clearly, the scope of XML-integration is large. LandScan may provide a real-time picture of what XML-feed integration could look like.
