Beckmann, C. and Schirmer, M.

Student project for the course in visualisation techniques (Prof. Bernd Froehlich).

While the del.icio.us website offers many possibilities to search for interesting links with the help of a tag system, del.icio.us lacks a visualisation of a user’s network. Every network consists of three layers, which can be traversed in both directions. Starting on the network layer, a set of user names defines the network members. Every network member has a number of tags and every tag links to a package of bookmarks.

Our motivation was to visualise these three characteristical layers and allow the user to directly browse the sites which can be discovered, without losing contact to the network layers.
