In this paper we present an interactive tool for policy-based merging of resource-classifying networks (RCNs). We motivate our approach by identifying several merge scenarios within organizations and discuss their individual requirements on RCN merge support. The quality-controlled merging of RCNs integrates the contributions from different authors, fostering synergies and the achievement of common goals. \parThe C-Merge tool design is based on a generalized view of the merge process and a simple but flexible model of RCNs. The tool is policy-driven and supports a variable degree of automation. Powerful options for user interaction and expressive change visualization enable substantial user support as well as effective quality control for the merge process.
