The World-Wide Web, due to its sheer size and dynamics, has turned into one of the most fascinating and important data sources for large-scale analysis and investigation, ranging from content-based information location, dynamics of change, to community analysis. Yet, most projects so far rely on special-purpose tools optimized for a given task, providing only limited flexibility. In this paper we propose a data warehouse-based approach to analyze the World-Wide Web. Information contained in the Web pages, meta data on the documents, as well as information acquired from additional sources such as the WHOIS database, are integrated into a multidimensional view of the Web. The resulting system allows for flexible analysis of the various characteristics of the Web. Results from a prototypical study of the Austrian national Web space as part of the AOLA project demonstrate the potential of the presented approach.
