Abstract:
A method of analysing search results using a computing device having at least a processor, a memory, a display device and an input device, comprises : a) enabling a user to enter into said memory at least two search terms using said input device; b) using said at least two search terms and said processor to perform a search of a data set and to provide one or more search results, being the results of said search; c) displaying on said display device: i) a search term particle corresponding to each search term; and ii) a search result particle corresponding to each search result; d) positioning each search term particle at a different position on said display device; e) using said processor to calculate for each search result particle: i) a force of attraction between the search result particle and at least one of the search term particles; and ii) a force of repulsion between the search result particle and at least some other search result particles; and f) displaying said search result particles on said display device in positions which correspond with the balance of said forces of attraction and repulsion.
