- Graphic Presentation/Scanned Document:
The source document is scanned page by page using the most appropriate scanning approach for the particular source. The resulting file is then processed and ultimately converted to an internet-compatible graphic type (jpg or gif). Selecting this link will present a sample of this type data.
Searching is accomplished by typing in a keyword or words in the designated searchbox(s). The search software will then present a list of document pages where the match or matches may occur. The Searcher must then review the page or pages to determine if the match is a success.
- Straight Text:
All searchable data is in the form of ascii (or text) characters. Therefore the search software seeks and lists all potential matches or returns a null set (ie no matches). There are two types of straight text search software employed; a perl scripted flat-file search and a robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server depending on the size of the database. Select here to see the case of zero results and here to see a typical successful search example using a flat-file database search.
