A Visual Approach to Query Formulation for Systematic Search

Tony Russell-Rose, Jon Chamberlain, Farhad Shokraneh
2019 Proceedings of the 2019 Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval - CHIIR '19  
Using the healthcare domain for context, we demonstrate a new approach to search strategy formulation in which concepts are expressed as objects on a two-dimensional canvas, and relationships are articulated  ...  This approach eliminates many sources of syntactic error, makes the query semantics more transparent, and offers new ways to optimise, save and share search strategies and best practices.  ...  DESIGN CONCEPT 3.1 Query formulation At the heart of 2dSearch is a graphical editor which allows the user to formulate search strategies using a visual framework in which concepts are expressed as objects  ...

Think outside the search box: A comparative study of visual and form-based query builders [article]

Tanja Svarre, Tony Russell-Rose
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we evaluate a new approach to query building in which users express concepts as objects on a visual canvas and compare this with traditional form-based query building in a lab-based user  ...  They also demonstrate the value of having a temporary 'scratch' space in query formulation.  ...  as a temporary 'scratch' space for query formulation.  ...

Toward Enabling Users to Visually Evaluate the Effectiveness of Different Search Methods

Anselm Spoerri
2004 Journal of Web Engineering  
This paper explores how information visualization can provide insights into the effectiveness of different query formulations or the same query submitted to multiple search engines.  ...  Different queries or search methods are deemed more effective if the fusion of their results leads to a new result set that contains an increased number of relevant documents.  ...  Acknowledgements This work extends a paper presented at the Workshop on Measuring Web Search Effectiveness: the User Perspective at WWW 2004.  ...

SPARQL Query Builders: Overview and Comparison

Pavel Grafkin, Mikhail Mironov, Michael Fellmann, Birger Lantow, Kurt Sandkuhl, Alexander V. Smirnov
2016 Business Informatics Research  
The SPARQL query language has been proposed as a simple language for querying graph-structured data on the Semantic Web. However, users have to write queries that must conform to the SPARQL syntax.  ...  This requirement might be alleviated using a SPARQL query builder that suggests relevant parts of the query. But, up to now, only a few basic comparisons of such tools exist.  ...  To widen search results we left only necessary keywords related to research topic: -("visual query builder" OR "visual query creation" OR "visual querying" OR "visual query formulation") AND "SPARQL" AND  ...

Data-driven visual graph query interface construction and maintenance

Sourav S. Bhowmick, Byron Choi, Curtis Dyreson
2016 Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment  
Visual query interfaces make it easy for scientists and other nonexpert users to query a data collection.  ...  A data-driven approach has many benefits such as reducing the cost in constructing and maintaining an interface, superior support for query formulation, and increased portability of the interface.  ...  A popular approach to make query formulation user-friendly is to provide a visual query interface (a.k.a GUI) for interactively constructing queries.  ...

Designing the Structured Search Experience: Rethinking the Query-Builder Paradigm

Tony Russell-Rose, Farhad Shokraneh
2020 Weave: Journal of Library User Experience  
In this paper, we present a new approach in which users express concepts as objects on a visual canvas and manipulate them to articulate relationships.  ...  This offers a more intuitive user experience (UX) that eliminates many sources of error, makes the query semantics more transparent, and offers new ways to collaborate, share, and optimize search strategies  ...  If that transpires to be a practicable proposition, then such a development could have profound implications for the way in which people teach, learn, and apply professional search skills.  ...

2dSearch: A Visual Approach to Search Strategy Formulation

Tony Russell-Rose, Phil Gooch
2018 Biennial Conference on Design of Experimental Search & Information Retrieval Systems  
In this paper, we present a new approach to query formulation in which concepts are expressed as objects on a two-dimensional canvas.  ...  This approach has the potential to eliminate many sources of inefficiency, make the query semantics more transparent, and offers further opportunities for query refinement and optimisation.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Part of this work was funded by Technology Strategy Board grant 131641 "A visual framework for search query formulation" and Innovate UK grant 102975 "Intelligent search assistance".  ...

Multiple object retrieval in image databases using hierarchical segmentation tree

Wei-Bang Chen, Chengcui Zhang
2011 Proceedings of the 19th ACM international conference on Multimedia - MM '11  
We believe this is the first systematic attempt to formulate a comprehensive, intelligent, and interactive framework for multiple object retrieval in image databases that makes use of a hierarchical region-tree  ...  The proposed research, unlike most existing works that are designed for single object retrieval or adopt heuristic multiple object matching scheme, aims at contributing to this field through the development  ...  The proposed framework uses the query-by-example approach which allows users to search image database given a query image.  ...

A Knowledge Graph-Based Method for Automating Systematic Literature Reviews [article]

Nada Sahlab and Hesham Kahoul and Nasser Jazdi and Michael Weyrich
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The objective of this work is to present an approach to partially automate the conduction of a Systematic Literature Review as well as classify and visualize the results as a knowledge graph.  ...  Systematic Literature Reviews aim at investigating current approaches to conclude a research gap or determine a futuristic approach.  ...  An SLR has the goal of forming a ground for a specific topic and work out a systematic outline for works related to it in literature.  ...

A Pool of Topics: Interactive Relational Topic Visualization for Information Discovery [chapter]

Inessa Seifert, Michael Kruppa
2009 Visual Information Communication  
In doing so, the information seeker can refine (or relax) a search query in an interactive way during a focusing or a defocusing phase.  ...  This visualization displays search query results structured into topics and highlights the intersections between them.  ...  Concepts are employed for query formulations that include search terms combined with logical operators. Facets are used to filter the retrieved query results.  ...

Tag-based social image retrieval: An empirical evaluation

Aixin Sun, Sourav S. Bhowmick, Khanh Tran Nam Nguyen, Ge Bai
2011 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
In this article, we take the first step to propose a generic, flexible, and extensible framework for this task and exploit it for a systematic and comprehensive empirical evaluation of various methods  ...  Although various heuristics are valuable to boost tag-based search for images, there is a lack of general framework to study the impact of these heuristics.  ...  Second, M J seems to be a better tag-query matching formulation than others for map.  ...
