no,
when you're on their site, and you type in a word to be searched for,
the resulting graphics they used to display the results, is what i'm
referring to.

Investigating further, I've found that thinkmap does offer a plugin/app/sdk that allows you to use their technology, for a fee(several thousand).
Also, there is someone that was working on a javascript solution.

wonderful!! the javascript solution is a near match. it can be modified as per your requirement using ajax.
