MetaCrystal: visual interface for meta searching
MetaCrystal visualizes the degree of overlap between the top results returned by different search engines. Linked overview tools support rapid exploration, facilitate advanced filtering operations and guide users toward relevant information. The direct manipulation interface enables users to iteratively compose and edit meta searches. MetaCrystal addresses the problem of the effective fusion of different search engine results by helping users control and gain insight into how to combine and filter them. Categories and Subject Descriptor H.3.3 Information Storage and Retrieval: Information Search and Retrieval - information filtering. H.5.2 Information Interfaces and Presentation (e.g., HCI): User Interfaces - graphical user interfaces (GUI).
