Indexing by Latent Semantic Analysis
A new method for automatic indexing and retrieval is described. The approach is to take advantage of implicit higher-order structure in the association of terms with documents (“semantic structure”)Expand
Indexing by Latent Semantic Analysis
TLDR
A new method for automatic indexing and retrieval to take advantage of implicit higher-order structure in the association of terms with documents (“semantic structure”) in order to improve the detection of relevant documents on the basis of terms found in queries. Expand
Generalized fisheye views
TLDR
This paper explores fisheye views presenting, in turn, naturalistic studies, a general formalism, a specific instantiation, a resulting computer program, example displays and an evaluation. Expand
Using latent semantic analysis to improve access to textual information
TLDR
Initial tests find this completely automatic method widely applicable and a promising way to improve users' access to many kinds of textual materials, or to objects and services for which textual descriptions are available. Expand
The vocabulary problem in human-system communication
TLDR
It is shown how this fundamental property of language limits the success of various design methodologies for vocabulary-driven interaction, and an optimal strategy, unlimited aliasing, is derived and shown to be capable of several-fold improvements. Expand
Recommending and evaluating choices in a virtual community of use
TLDR
A general history-of-use method that automates a social method for informing choice and report on how it fares in the context of a fielded test case: the selection of videos from a large set of videos. Expand
Information retrieval using a singular value decomposition model of latent semantic structure
In a new method for automatic indexing and retrieval, implicit higher-order structure in the association of terms with documents is modeled to improve estimates of term-document association, andExpand
Space-scale diagrams: understanding multiscale interfaces
TLDR
Space-scale diagrams provide an analytic framework for much of this work by representing both a spatial world and its different magnifications explicitly, which allows the direct visualization and analysis of important scale related issues for interfaces. Expand
The FISHEYE view: a new look at structured les
An input/output subsystem in which a peripheral device controller controls the device in response to commands received from an input/output (I/O) channel which is connected to a processor. A channelExpand
Effective view navigation
TLDR
The implications of rudimentary requirements for effective view navigation are explored, namely that, despite the vastness of an information structure, the views must be small, moving around must not take too many steps and the route to any target be must be discoverable. Expand
