DIRF has been working for more than one decade on the exploitation and utilization of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). This includes the effective use of Internet and Web.
Web usage activity is the process of extracting useful information from web. The heterogeneity and the lack of structure deny the utilization of the needed information. Massive Internet storage permits much of the ever-expanding information sources on the World Wide Web. A substantial part of the total information output is available only in the web. The volume of printed information goes down with the rapid increase of digital information.
The Digital Information Research Foundation strives to promote the web content use in the optimal way. We train the various sections of the society in the effective web use. We work for the structuring of the digital information. We enable the end-users to stick in the right path of web information access. We work through projects, publications, training and events.
Web use is measured and it leads to make many policy decisions. We work on web logs and web metrics. Compiling web metrics enable to create usage data in different sectors such as business, academics, society and so on.
