MetaCrystal of the Future



MetaCrystal enables users to visualize and control the degree of overlap between the results returned by different search engines. Several linked overview tools support rapid exploration, facilitate complex filtering operations and guide users towards relevant information.

User can also apply weights to the search engines to create their own ranking functions, and control the degree of overlap by modifying the directory depth or by changing the number of documents compared.
