Rootza Information Indexing and Search Service

Victoria Redfern demonstrated her RootZa "... online tool to assist researchers, students, professionals and the general public to search the internet or www". There is a paper in the ACM digital library by Victoria: "World wide web: online core concept thesaucratic database development to improve information seeking". Also her patent application "ENHANCED SEARCHING USING A THESAURUS" (WIPO Patent Application WO/2007/012120). The tool has a visualization of the results as a diagram but the claims for invention appear to be about how the thesaurus is generated. This may be of use for Defence classification systems.
