Visualizing Rich, Structured Hypermedia
July-August 1998 (vol. 18 no. 4)
pp. 40-42
In this short article I describe visualization techniques designed to help users understand and manage the complexity of large, structured hypermedia collections. Hyperlink relationships and hierarchical structure can be visualized either separately or in combination. The availability of rich metadata allows further enhancement of the visualizations.
