Welcome to my web site!
My name is Vangelis Banos. I am an Information & Communication Systems Engineer. I have an MSc in Information Systems and a PhD in Informatics from the Department of Informatics of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
I focus on software engineering, digital libraries, metadata, aggregators, web archiving, digital preservation and search engines.
Below, you can see a list of the most interesting things that I’m working on right now.
WebGraph-It.com analyses websites and creates web graphs. WebGraph-It can detect duplicate and near-duplicate webpages, as well as web spider traps.
ArchiveReady.com is an innovative online tool which determines if your website will be archived correctly by web archives (2012+).
One of my most important projects is openarchives.gr, the first and most important search engine for Greek scientific and cultural content.
I developed the Hellenic Aggregator for Europeana . The system is sharing content from 20 Greek digital libraries with Europeana.
UltraCl@rity (ΥπερΔιαύγεια) is a search engine indexing the full text of all Greek Government public documents, published online through the “Cl@rity” open gov data project (2011+).
I develop and operate oaipmh.com, a web application which enables validation and data extraction from OAI-PMH enabled digital libraries (2010+).
