Abstract

FindFlow is a search interface that enables users to construct queries visually on the screen. Because the constructed queries show the process of the search, the user can take a step forward in the search while monitoring the process. The queries can be recombined freely, and previous search results can be reused. In addition, FindFlow shows results interactively for each operation. FindFlow is advantages for searches in which the user repeats trial and error many times.
