online graphical dictionary Visuwords™ online graphical dictionary — Look up words to find their meanings and associations with other words and concepts. Produce diagrams reminiscent of a neural net. Learn how words associate. Enter words into the search box to look them up or double-click a node to expand the tree. It's a dictionary! Visuwords™ uses Princeton University’s WordNet, an opensource database built by University students and language researchers. The Visuwords™ Interface To use the applet you only need to type a word into the search query at the top of the page and press 'Enter'. You can zoom the model in and out by rolling the wheel on your mouse. Understanding the links between Synsets "is a kind of" — hyponym/hypernym pair With regards to "wheat" and "grain", we see a cyan link from "wheat" pointing towards "grain" we can understand this to mean that wheat "is a kind of" grain.

Visualizious: Visualizing Social Indexing Visualizious Visualizious is a research project about social indexing (a.k.a. social tagging), information retrieval and visualization. The project is carried out by Yusef Hassan Montero and Víctor Herrero Solana (University of Granada, Spain). Visualizing Social Indexing Semantics This prototype allows visualizing both the overview and detail of semantic relationships intrinsic in the folksonomy.

Improved Tag-Clouds Tag-Cloud is a simple and widely used visual interface model, but with some restrictions that limit its utility as visual information retrieval interface. Our work presents a novel approach to Tag-Cloud's tags selection, and proposes the use of clustering algorithms for visual layout, with the aim of improve browsing experience.
