Gambal is an information retrieval system for indexing and accessing web pages that includes graphical interfaces to ease web page search and accessing. In particular, the interfaces provide the user with tools for navigating through hierarchies of documents and visualize selected documents and similar ones. Here, similarity is either based on Wordnet 1.7 or Latent Semantics Analysis. Graphical interfaces include both Hierarchical Spherical Clustering (HSC) and Hierarchical Self Organizing Maps (HSOM). In this work we introduce the use of fuzzy clustering for indexing in the HSC interface.
