 Abstract: It is human tendency to produce and consume information. The larger the size of the data, the harder it is to find exactly what we are looking for. Vernon Vinge quoted What we have is a data glut. (1) when referring to the vastness of the data, he states Our ability to process the information, has reached beyond unaided humans abilities. As we gained access to rich and vast data, search application was the natural answer to navigate through a collection of a big datasets and open web.
Today navigating complex information spaces are addressed with efforts in information retrieval (IR) techniques such as Internet Search engines and Enterprise search engines etc. Grand challenge of search depends on the ability to bring, not just relevant documents but information coated with their context and meanings. Search should be an interactive process where user’s questions changes the layout of the search goals, a system where the user has more control in determining results. Search needs to be adapted to the context of the information it deals with.
The aim of this thesis is to help General practitioners to find prescription drugs and articles in medical corpus, using information visualization. The paper presents the main concepts and issues that makes finding proscription drug information difficult, reviews many research prototypes built to address similar problems from different domains. Next is an exploratory prototyping describing the individual pedagogies of visualization, data collection, data modeling, and design for the exploration, analysis, and representation of data ending with an evaluation of the developed prototype.
