Visualization Portal, 5628 Math Sciences
Los Angeles, CA 90095

A demonstration of a new method of search and retrieval of word occurrence that displays results in abstract visualization. This system developed with support from the National Science Foundation and the Luce Foundation by Professor Lancaster and Mr. Howie Lan is based on the digital version of the Korean Buddhist canon. The interface system will provide a new approach to the study of the 13th century Haein Sa printing blocks content.

The presentation at UCLA will be the first live demonstration of the new system. The discussion will focus on how to deal with large data sets and search results that report thousands of hits for a target word or phrase.
