Text, email, databases, library MARC records, and other data can be indexed and easily found with this powerful search engine.

Why PISCES is better?


PISCES is fast, proven, and flexible. PISCES ranks information based upon three factors: the number of unique query terms in a document, automatic term weighting based on a standard term frequency – inverse document frequency (TfIdf) algorithm, and proximity weighting. These three factors can be weighted in their effect on the final ranking and custom algorithms can be crafted to optimize searching unique collections. A retrieval language is used where reserved words are preceded by an ‘at’ (@) sign. With PISCES, you can change the “Stop Word” list and synonym dictionary to improve recall and relevance.

PISCES Combines the advantages of traditional relevancy ranking algorithms with a proprietary algorithm for ranking based on word proximity as well as standard Boolean operations. PISCES is used with unstructured textual data and highly structured data such as XML-encoded documents and MARC records. It searches multiple databases in any combination, yielding combined ranked result lists. It consists of a library of search and retrieval subroutines which may be combined to produce .NET as well as stand-alone retrieval systems.
