Customized Portable Web Search Tool Using Substance and Area

A. Daison Raj, R. Subashini, M. Yuvashree, A. Suganya


We propose a Customized Portable Web Search Tool (CPWST) that catches the clients' inclination as ideas by mining their navigate information. Because of the essentialness of area data in portable pursuit, CPWST groups these ideas into substance ideas and area ideas. Furthermore, clients' areas (situated by GPS) are utilized to supplement the area ideas in CPWST. In our outline, the customer gathers and stores generally the navigate information to secure protection, though overwhelming errands, for example, idea extraction, preparing, and re-positioning are performed at the CPWST server. Additionally, we address the protection issue by limiting the data in the client profile presented to the CPWST server with two privacy parameters. We prototype CPWST on the Google Android platform.
