Utilizing Wikimap technology, we are able to graphically display search results to show the user relations between topics. The Wikimap is a Flash based tool that displays results from a search query. The central node of a Wikimap is the closest article to a search term. Articles that are most related to the search term are displayed spiraling outward from the central node. We are always working on new search algorithms to fine-tune search results.
