Carrot2 Image Search

Carrot2 is a search interface with its own start and result page. The special focus of the search engine is the preparation of results. The results are assigned thematically to different categories as well as graphically presented in cicles and foam trees.
Today the Swiss search engine etools is used. In the past, the search engines MSN Live Search/Bing and Yahoo were also available. The search engine was developed by Dawid Weiss and Stanislaw Osinski at PoznaŽn University of Technology.
Different clustering methods are available: Suffix tree clustering (STC), k-means, Lingo (an own development of the Carrot2 developers), by URL and at Source.

From 2008 to 2016, Carrot2 offered an image search engine which first used Yahoo's image search and later that of Bing.
