Topic Maps Graph Visualization & Suggested GTM

Article, was published by Jelle Pelfrene and Rani Pinchuk at 2010-09-30

This paper introduces a new approach to GTM (Graphical Topic Maps notation).

The goal of this work is to generate graphical representations that visually present knowledge kept in a topic map, in a way that is best grasped by users. The paper first describes an idea of providing a contextually relevant excerpt of the topic map as a graph. Then the graphical notation for representing these excerpts is discussed.
