The Big Picture(sm):

Visual Browsing in Web and non-Web Databases

For further development of The Big Picture(sm) clearinghouse, I am interested in learning of other projects, research, products, or services that have applied 'information visualization' technologies to Web collections or bibliographical databases. At this time, I am not interested in data visualization or the application of these technologies to pure text or document collections.

  • Fish-eye Views
  • Hyperbolic Trees
  • Landscapes
  • Perspective Walls
  • Rooms
  • Sphere Visualization

While I am interested in the application of these technologies to Web collections, I am particularly interested in any efforts that have applied these to MARC databases of any type, Web or non-Web.
As always, any other recommendations, suggestions, reactions, contacts, or leads will be very much appreciated.
As sites and projects are identified and reviewed they will be profiled at the following URL:
