Document Icons

» download IEEE InfoVis paper (2005)

Software designed to allow the user to search intuitively through content of seven million text documents by reconfiguring histograms used by common search engines.

A. We begin with a histogram of words and their corresponding weights relative to a given set of documents. We order the histogram to form loosely defined concepts.

B. We wrap the histogram data around a point and draw bounding boxes to define salient concept areas.We then create a shape which becomes the documents profile showing comparing concept areas within the document.

C. The interface shows the document icons as they would be used to compare between 30-100 documents in a single frame.
