Visualization Cockpit: Orchestration of Multiple Visualizations for Knowledge-Exploration

Kawa Nazemi, Matthias Breyer, Dirk Burkhardt, Dieter W. Fellner


Semantic-Web technologies and ontology-based information processing systems are established techniques, in more than only research areas and institutions. Different worldwide projects and enterprise companies identified already the added value of semantic technologies, so they work on different sub-topics for gathering and conveying knowledge. As the process of gathering and structuring semantic information plays a key role in the most developed applications, the process of transferring and adopting knowledge to and by humans is neglected, although the complex structure of knowledge-design opens many research-questions. The customization of the presentation itself and the interaction techniques with these presentation artifacts is a key question for gainful and effective work with semantic information. The following paper describes a new approach for visualizing semantic information as a composition of different adaptable ontology-visualization techniques. We start with a categorized description of existing ontology visualization techniques and show potential gaps.
