We present iMapping, a zooming based approach for visually organizing information objects. It was developed on top of semantic desktop technologies and especially targets the support of personal knowledge management. iMapping has been designed to combine the advantages of spatial hypertext and other proven visual mapping approaches like mind-mapping and concept mapping, which are incompatible in their original form. We describe the design and prototypical implementation of iMapping -- which is… Expand
A Graphical Workbench for Knowledge Workers
TLDR
iMapping bridges the gap between unstructured content (like informal text notes) and semantic models by allowing to easily create on-the-fly annotations with the whole range of content links, from vague associations to formal relationships. Expand
Designing a Knowledge Mapping Tool for Knowledge Workers
TLDR
Main GUI principles of the iMapping knowledge mapping and interaction design are elaborate, allowing for user-friendly articulation, semantic annotation and interlinking of personal knowledge, as well as its gradual semantic enrichment. Expand
Collecting and Structuring Information in the Information Collage
TLDR
This paper presents the concept of an information collage -- a web browser extension combining manual spatial organization of gathered information fragments and automatic text analysis for interactive content exploration and expressive visual summaries. Expand
An experience using a spatial hypertext Wiki
TLDR
An experience about the use of ShyWiki features and its spatial hypertext model is reported and the evaluation of a questionnaire that users answered about their perceived usefulness and easiness of use of the spatial and visual properties of Shy Wiki, and several of its features are presented. Expand
NuSys: Towards a Document IDE for Knowledge Work
Knowledge workers consume and annotate digital documents such as PDF files, videos, images and text notes - in some cases collaboratively - to form mental models and gain insight. An abundance ofExpand
MindXpres: An Extensible Content-Driven Cross-Media Presentation Platform
TLDR
This work presents MindXpres, a web technology-based extensible platform for content-driven cross-media presentations that enables an active participation of the audience which should ultimately result in more dynamic, engaging presentations and improved knowledge transfer. Expand
Social Emergent Semantics for Personal Data Management
TLDR
This work applies the emergent semantics field to personal data management, aiming to decrease the authors' cognitive efforts spent in simple tasks, handling semantic evolution in conjunction with their close peers. Expand
Enhanced Document Retrieval and Discovery Based on a Combination of Implicit and Explicit Document Relationships
TLDR
A novel document retrieval and discovery framework that addresses some of the limitations of existing solutions and exploits implicit relationships between documents--defined by the similarity of their content as well as their metadata--and explicit links defined between documents based on a third-party link service. Expand
PimVis: Exploring and Re-finding Documents in Cross-Media Information Spaces
TLDR
The presented PimVis solution enables a unified organisation of digital and paper documents through the creation of bidirectional links between the digital and physical information space and supports the extension with alternative document tracking techniques as well as augmented reality solutions. Expand
Web Information Systems Engineering – WISE 2014
TLDR
This tutorial elaborate on blocking techniques, starting from the early, schema-based ones that were crafted for database integration and continuing with the presentation of the latest blocking methods that are crafted for Web-scale data. Expand

DeepaMehta - A Semantic Desktop
TLDR
DeepaMehta aims to evolve nowadays' separated desktop applications into an integrated workspace, enabling the user to organize, describe, relate, edit and use almost any information objects. Expand
Haystack: a platform for creating, organizing and visualizing semistructured information
TLDR
Haystack uses a semistructured data model to describe the connections between different documents in a user’s corpus as well as the metadata concerning each document, providing users with a unified framework for managing all of their information through a single interface. Expand
Popcorn: the personal knowledge base
TLDR
The design rationale for the system is described, contrasting it with related efforts, and the results of deploying it to a group of volunteers who used it in real-world settings suggest that the analysis underlying the design is useful, and that Popcorn is a powerful and effective tool for a variety of intellectual work. Expand
Semantics happen: knowledge building in spatial hypertext
TLDR
The Visual Knowledge Builder lets users express content via visual or textual means and later formalize that content in the form of attributes, values, types, and relations and proactively supports this process through a set of suggestion agents whose interaction with the user is mediated by the suggestion manager. Expand
Conceptual data structures for personal knowledge management
TLDR
The unified data model (CDS) is capable of representing structures from various information tools, including documents, file systems, hypertext, tagging and mind maps, and can be a way to make PKM tools interoperable. Expand
Searching for the missing link: discovering implicit structure in spatial hypertext
TLDR
This paper examines implicit structures that rely on the interpretation of node’s spatial context and indicates that recognition of implicit structures in spatial hypertext is feasible, interaction will be important in guiding such recognition, and the hypertext system can provide layout facilities that will render later systematic interpretation much easier.

  • HYPERTEXT '05
  • 2005
TLDR
A quick view of the history of hypermedia technology for knowledge workers is presented, some issues with respect to the current work are identified, and a vision of the future as well as a call for a joint community effort is presented. Expand
Pad: an alternative approach to the computer interface
TLDR
The Pad interface is described, which provides an intuitive base for the support of such applications as electronic marketplaces, information services, and on-line collaboration and discusses how to efficiently implement its graphical aspects. Expand
Parsing and interpreting ambiguous structures in spatial hypermedia
TLDR
The comparison of FLAPS to other parsers reveals benefits of supporting ambiguous structures by computing multiple possible interpretations and identifies limitations that provide goals for future spatial parsers. Expand
Spatial hypertext: an alternative to navigational and semantic links
TLDR
Systems in which the user's main interaction with the hypertext was through a network map rather than a document viewer, such as gIBIS and Aquanet, presented a visual network containing typed links and nodes where the types are visually distinguished within the map. Expand
