Media Type: Graphics
Date of Image/Photo: March 1998
Background: In this visualization, the x and y axes both correspond to an ordered list of entities. The z axis corresponds to the various types of relationships that occur in this subset. If an entity has a particular relationship to another entity, then a small bead shape in that z-plane will correspond to the intersection of the two entity planes. If the entities have multiple relationships there will be several such beads - perhaps a stack of beads - at various z-positions. The tool allows the user to categorize the various relationships, hide or show particular relationships at will, highlight asymmetric relationships, and reorder the document display. Colors can be assigned to categories to help group or distinguish different relationships.
