A 3D USER INTERFACE FOR THE SEMANTIC NAVIGATION OF WWW INFORMATION

Abstract

The automatic creation of a conceptual knowledge map using documents coming from the Web is a very relevant problem because of the difficulty to distinguish between valid and invalid contents documents. In this paper we present an improved search engine GUI for displaying and organizing alternative views of data, by the use of a 3D graphical interface, and a method for organizing search results using a semantic approach during the storage and retrieval of information. The presented work deals with two main aspects. The first one regards the semantic aspects of knowledge management, in order to support the user during the query composition and to supply to him information strictly related to his interests. The second one argues the advantages coming from the adoption of a 3D user interface, to provide alternative views of data.
