(FR) BASE DE DONNEES ET INTERFACE POUR MOTEUR DE RECHERCHE
Abstract
(EN)
Internet related local commerce applications are facilitated by a geographically coded search engine database (2). Various user interface features (3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 21, 22, 33) are presented substantially simplifying searching of geographically coded Internet pages. Standard directories are also integrated into Internet based searches to provide greater feedback to users of the system.

Les applications commerciales locales liées à l'Internet sont facilitées par une base de données de moteur de recherche codée géographiquement (2). Plusieurs caractéristiques d'interface utilisateur (3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 21, 22, 33) sont présentées, et elles permettent de simplifier sensiblement la recherche de pages Internet codées géographiquement. Des répertoires standards sont également intégrés aux recherches sur Internet, et ce en vue de fournir davantage de réactions aux utilisateurs du système.
