Internet has paved the way for accessing huge amount of data from across the globe. World Wide Web (WWW) is playing an important role in helping users to obtain required data in various domains. People of all walks of life are using search engines in order to search for data. The results returned by search engines are in the form of web pages that hold results obtained from underlying databases. The search results can be used further in many applications such as data collection, comparison of prices and so on. However, to make these applications successful the search results are to be made machine processable. In order to make them machine processable, it is important that the result pages are annotated in a meaningful fashion. The process of annotating has to consider groups of data and obtain final annotation after aggregating them. Recently Lu et al. proposed various annotators that help in annotating search results. In this paper we built a prototype application that will provide graphical means of making annotations and visualizing them. We implemented one of the methods proposed by Lu et al. in the proposed application. The empirical results revealed that the application is effecting in annotating search results.
