Our client was looking for extensive search functionality to offer a better user experience on the site. They wanted their users to be able to build a family tree, perform an advanced search using filters on various record types or execute various operations on the record images like brightness or contrast.


After analyzing our client requirements, we built their website with custom entities and indexed all the data to Solr. We implemented six search options to make the user search experience easier. We used Exact Match because it returns the results with an exact match of user input; Begins With returns results where the name starts with a user input; Wildcard because it returns results with a partial match of the user input; Fuzzy because it returns results with a similar spelling; Soundex because it returns results which have a similar sound, and  Name Variants because it returns results for all the possible name variants like synonyms or nicknames.


We used six different search options to offer the end user flexibility while searching for a specific piece of text and visualize the search results based on their regions. They are experiencing an ease in the image manipulation as well as retrieval of the relevant objects from the image database. This advanced search functionality has also made database cleanup redundant, thus saving time.
