The objective of the following research is to investigate the problem of information management and conveyed experience on the World Wide Web (WWW) when multi-modal sensors and media are available. After studying related areas of work about the web and heterogeneous media, it became apparent that one of the main challenges of the area is the semantic unification of heterogeneous media. This thesis will introduce an event-based model to semantically unify media. An event is defined as something of significance that takes place at a given time and location. Using this definition and the corresponding model, a system will be designed to illustrate practical use cases for events.
