dc.description.abstract As web sites are getting more complicated, the construction of web information extraction systems becomes more troublesome and timeconsuming. A common theme is the difficulty in locating the segments of a page in which the target information is contained, which we call the informative blocks. So discriminating informative blocks from the noisy blocks and then extracting the informative blocks from web page is an important task. In this paper, we propose a method that utilizes both the visual features and semantic information to extract information block. First, the VIPS (Visionbased Page Segmentation) algorithm is used to partition a web page into semantic blocks with a hierarchy structure. Then spatial features (such as position, size) and content feature (the number of image and links) are extracted to construct feature vector for each block. Secondly based on these feature, the blocks with similar content structures and spatial structures are clustered by means of similarity computation. After clustering blocks with similar structures, determine the cluster with the largest size and nearest distance to the centre of page as informative block. en_US
