Dynamic Organization of Search Results Using a Taxonomic Domain Model

Wanda Pratt

Current information-retrieval tools return the results of a search as a flat list of documents. Some tools order the documents according to relevance criteria, such as date created or number of matching search terms, but few group them in a meaningful way. The returned list of search results is often so long that it is too time consuming for the user to browse and understand all of it. I propose that organizing search results into categories will help users to explore and understand the information space related to their query.
