Abstract

skillMap serves the demands of 3rd generation KM for unstructured and human-centred
approaches and is based on the Web 2.0 – concept. It combines a social network with a
semantic network of skills. A visualization of the combined graphs serves as user-interface.
After describing the technical implementation of the skillMap, we argue that the skillMap
offers levels of variety, autonomy, creative chaos, and redundancy that are present in
successful social movements of the web and fuel users’ intrinsic motivation. User evaluation
results show that the positive perception of the user interface co-occurs with user expressions
of enjoyment and curiosity.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
