“Fuzzy searches are an example of the smart searching we required for this application.”
The department of transportation for a major US city selected archizo, a New York-based integration company, to create a public site for reporting traffic signal or street lighting problems. The site allows a user to enter the street address or intersection where the problem exists. For example, a user might enter Lexington and 35th. The Web site would then return a ranked list of streets or intersections that matched the user requests. The user would select the correct intersection, complete the form reporting the problem and submit the request to the department.

For the Web site, archizo chose the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine to search streets and intersections. "We selected dtSearch for its smart searching of text based data," said Vince Mautone, President, archizo. "Fuzzy searches are an example of the smart searching we required for this application. We also selected dtSearch for its ability to create custom search rules through its API. As an example, if I searched for the street name Lexington and mistyped it Lexintton, we wanted the system to still retrieve the correct hit on Lexington."

On a development level, with the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine, archizo was able to very quickly deliver the requested Web site for the city. "dtSearch was selected not only for its sophisticated text search abilities, but also for its ability to quickly deliver and deploy a prototype using those abilities," said Mr. Mautone.
