Visualization of facets
Provide intuitive visualization of result sets, with drag-and-drop capabilities to combine concepts. Show relative size of sets based upon results, overlap of concepts, and citation relationship of concepts as space between sets.
Value for Users
Remove the need for Boolean activators, show visually existing computer identified connections and relationships, new alignment possibilities, and allow researchers to equally see authors, institutions, subject headings, keywords, and even thesauri relationships in one physical plane. Summun and other pre-harvesting tools perform the relationship aspects, but do not provide visualization interfaces showing easily combineable objects.
any researcher looking for existing deep relationships between authors/institutions/granting agencies and concepts with existing relationships or possible near alignments or unconsidered alignments. Especially powerful for finding areas of overlap across disciplines with different vocabularies/ontologies.
