This lecture is about aspects of specification and development of data warehouse technologies for complex web data. Large amounts of data exist in different web resources and in different formats. But it is often hard to analyze and query the often big and complex data or data about the data. It is therefore interesting to apply Data Warehouse (DW) technology to the data. But to apply DW technology to complex web data is not straightforward and the DW community faces new and exciting challenges. The presented thesis considers some of these challenges.
