Visualizing and searching medical references with treemaps and hyperbolic trees (2002-2004)
Participant : Christophe Bouthier [responsable].
The National Library of Medicine (USA) manages a large number of archives concerning medicine. Everybody can access these archives, but the number of documents is so important that the navigation in this document base is very hard. Even with a traditional search engine, the number of returned document is too high for being easily exploited. To surpass this limit, an interface based on our Tree Map and Hyperbolic Trees visualization libraries (cf. 5.6), and on a combination of both, is being developed.
