More about the old way of clustering:

No particular “visualization” suggested by the following links is of interest to me, but I thought it would be a good idea to quote them here so that I can refer to it later on if needed

1 thing I learn by reading those links: we can translate the “query” that the user input in into some “visualization” e.g

query:

(find …. Condition A,B,C)

step taken by the program:

Display query visually

--> load the finding … or any relevant steps to retrieve the information for the finding

--> Visualize the finding

• This search engine is powered by the Antarcti.ca organisation's Visual Net software, and claims to be the 'natural evolution of search'. Web sites are represented by target symbols, clustered by subject.

• WebBrain offers a hybrid approach to searching, in that it supports the use of text queries and directory browsing.
• When I click on a subject, the display will change to show other related categories. The uncomplicated graphics and logical subject hierarchy  easy to use
• Similar to Map.net and Kartoo and other that I have mentioned before














Another website that has very similar interface with this page is
