Nowadays semantic networks become more important in industry and modern science. For this reason there is a need for an efficient tool allowing preparation and navigation through complex data spaces. We present the novel Topic Map tool H-Maps, which offers a web based navigator providing an enhanced utilization and graphical visualization of semantic networks. Present applications transform existing content to subject-centric Topic Map representations in a one-way fashion. Preserving the advantage of transferring diverse back ends into a unified topic map in existing applications the H-Maps approach goes one step further. The resulting topic map structure can be examined and extended with an iterative procedure. Especially in science this procedure is leading to a considerable improvement of flexibility and performance as can be shown within projects of computational biology.
