This paper introduces multitrees, a new type of structure for representing information. Multitrees are a class of directed acyclic graphs (DAGs) with the unusual property that they have large easily identifiable substructures that are trees. These subtrees have a natural semantic interpretation providing alternate hierarchical contexts for information, as well as providing a natural model for hierarchical reuse. The numerous trees found within multitrees also afford familiar, tree-based… Expand
Trees in a treemap: visualizing multiple hierarchies
TLDR
A new visualization technique that is introduced that is called Trees In A Treemap, where edges can either be drawn as straight or orthogonal edges, and is compared with several known techniques. Expand
Interactive visualization of genealogical graphs
TLDR
A graph theoretic analysis is given, which identifies why genealogical graphs can be difficult to draw, and motivates some novel graphical representations, including one based on a dual tree, a subgraph formed by the union of two trees. Expand

TLDR
This work proposes a new undirected tree-driven layout technique for layered multitree graph visualizations producing constraints on node layers and ordering of groups of nodes within layers and can be mapped, at least partially, into the DOT language property directives used by the Graphviz toolbox.

MoireTrees: Visualization and Interaction for Multi-Hierarchical Data
TLDR
A radial focus+context display algorithm and interaction methods are introduced to explore multi-hierarchical data with multiple roots or multiple paths per element. Expand
Supporting user-specific views via multidimensional trees
TLDR
This work tries to support the use of individual concepts of the information space with a general structure, and tries to minimize the number of forced decisions in the user's decision tree. Expand
Polyarchy visualization: visualizing multiple intersecting hierarchies
TLDR
The visualization design and system architecture challenges as well as the current solutions to solve these challenges are described. Expand
Interactive Labelled Object Treemap: Visualization Tool for Multiple Hierarchies
TLDR
This paper has designed an interactive version of the existing ‘labelled object ‘Treemap’ technique including single representation, high compactness, cluster identification, etc., and solves the issues of edge crossings and continuity. Expand
Visualizing and Interacting with Multi-Tree Hierarchical Data
This work focuses on visualizing highly cyclic hierarchical data. A user interface is discussed and its interaction is illustrated using a recipe database example. This example showcases a databaseExpand

Seeing the forest for the trees: hierarchical displays of hypertext structures
TLDR
This paper describes display techniques developed for IGD, a hypertext system that supports the creation of large graphical documents whose arbitrary directed graph structure is embedded in a strict hierarchy. Expand
Structural analysis of hypertexts: identifying hierarchies and useful metrics
TLDR
This paper proposes several authoring tools, based on hypertext structure analysis, that provide a multifaceted view of the hypertext, which should allow authors to reduce undesired structural complexity and create documents that readers can traverse more easily. Expand
Hypermedia Topologies and User Navigation
TLDR
This paper articulates a number of navigational strategies that people use in physical (geographical) navigation and correlates these with various graph topologies, showing how and why appropriately restricting the connectivity of a hyperbase can improve the ability of users to navigate. 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 hypertext in selecting reusable software components
TLDR
This paper explores the use of hypertext to enhance the process of component selection through a prototype system called Kiosk, and discusses the selection process, why hypertext is well suited for supporting selection, and important characteristics ofhypertext systems intended to support reuse.
