Title: MusE central: a data aggregation system for music events
Issue Date: 2014
Abstract: Along with the evolution of the Internet and its ever-increasing use, a significant trend to develop solutions to provide information is noticeable. This scenario increases information decentralization in certain contexts. Nowadays, information regarding music is available online in several online locations. In this context, this paper reports on the development of a web platform that centralizes existing information regarding events, retrieving other contextually related data available. Validated with both information retrieval quality and interface usability metrics, this project attained a more effective and complete concert search service according to the data provided to the user. It has revealed itself capable of retrieving information on more events, when compared to other platforms without a data centralization approach. According to the usability survey results attained, such as an 89 SUS scale score, it was proved that the developed service is provided with a simple and intuitive interface as well.
