Scatter/Gather browser on a news collection

We implemented a Scatter/Gather browser using 33k news documents provided by HARD track from the Text REtrieval Conference (TREC). Scatter/Gather provides a different approach (from classic paradigms of searching and browsing) to finding information and is often useful in situations where the user may feel difficult to formulate a search query. The included image is a snapshot a working/demo system, which can be accessed at:
