PLATFORM FOR ELABORATION OF SEARCH RESULTS

Ari Korhonen, Juha Litola, Jorma Tarhio

Abstract

We introduce a systemcalled VisElabor that is a platformfor elaborating search results. It is a local meta search engine utilizing general search engines. The system downloads a number of documents from the search results and is dynamically able to cluster them and show them on multiple views. VisElabor visualizes relations of documents based on clustering, and it coordinates the information among the views based on user actions in order to better maintain the user context. In addition, VisElabor has been designed so that it is fairly easy to integrate new visualizations and other elaborations into the system.
