The increased importance of public data has shifted the emphasis to the search-ability and discovery of data on the Internet. Data registries and meta data catalogs that index data, meta data and services exist for various fields and are continued to be maintained manually; if used effectively, this would provide a powerful means of searching for data. However in many cases, these meta data registries fail to capture meta data on a large number of available web services and data sources, thus reducing the effectiveness of a meta data search. Rather than requiring data publishers to manually publish meta data registries, we propose a novel way of automating the creation of ad hoc registries with basic meta data, which would then allow users to carry our efficient data discovery.
