The EIAO project is co-funded by the European Commission, under the IST contract 2003-004526-STREP.


In this deliverable we present an approach for measuring transparency of Norwegian municipality web sites using learning algorithms. As a proof of concept we have developed an algorithm for detecting the presence of mail records. This implementation detects mail records with an accuracy of 96.5% using only about 3 seconds per page.

Additionally, we have outlined initial ideas of how to implement algorithms for all eGovMon tests which rely on learning algorithms.
