Visualization for Information Retrieval
Visualization for information retrieval refers to a process that transforms the invisible abstract data and their semantic relationships in a data collection into a visible display and visualizes the internal retrieval processes for users . Basically visualization for information retrieval consists of two components: visually presenting objects in a meaningful way in a defined visual environment or space and visualizing information seeking process within the environment or space. Transformation of the invisible and abstract information and sophisticated semantic connections or relevant relationships into a visual environment requires clearly defining a visual environment or space, pinpointing the objects in a data collection which are displayed in the visual environment, identifying meaningful connections among the objects, and projecting both the objects and the relationships onto the environment. The form and way of visualizing the internal retrieval process vary in...
