WebThemeTM is an interactive new computer tool that provides a visual display of the common themes in collections of web-based documents, helping the user explore and understand large amounts of data with minimal reading. A web search for the phrase "information visualization" found hundreds of pages, which are plotted in this 3D visualization called ThemeView TM. The height of Themeview's peaks is dependent on the number of documents containing similar themes and the strength of the themes within those documents. Users also can "probe" a document (gray arrow) to call up the key words for a particular region.
