Vivisimo’s Clusty Government Search Engine
Vivisimo and its Clusty search client launched Gov.Clusty.com today, a service built to search and cluster political news, government information sites, such as FirstGov, think tanks and large, publicly released government documents, such as the 2006 Federal Budget and the 9/11 Report from a single site.
Gov.Clusty.com is powered by Vivisimo’s clustering technology and is designed to help searchers easily navigate the massive amounts of government-related information generated on a daily basis.
Clusty Gov Tab Features:
