Abstract

This paper presents a grid-based interaction model that is designed to encourage searchers to organize a complex search space by managing n x m sub spaces. A search interface was developed based on the proposed interaction model, and its performance was evaluated by a user study carried out in the context of the NTCIR-9 VisEx Task. With the proposed interface, there were cases where subjects discovered new knowledge without accessing external resources when compared to a baseline system. The encouraging results from experiments warrant further studies on the model.
