ThinkFree: Using a visual wiki for IT knowledge management in a tertiary institution Knowledge management
Visual wiki
Visualisation
WikiSym 2010 English 2010 We describe ThinkFree, an industrial Visual Wiki application which provides a way for end users to better explore knowledge of IT Enterprise Architecture assets that is held within a large enterprise wiki. The application was motivated by the difficulty users were facing navigating and understanding enterprise architecture information in a large corporate wiki. ThinkFree provides a graph based interactive visualization of IT assets which are described using the Freebase semantic wiki. It is used to visualize relationships between those assets and navigate between them. We describe the motivation for the development of ThinkFree, its design and implementation. Our experiences in corporate rollout of the application are discussed, together with the strengths of weaknesses of the approach we have taken and lessons learned from ThinkFree's development and deployment. 0 0

ASE'10 - Proceedings of the IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering English 2010 With the need to make sense out of large and constantly growing information spaces, tools to support information management are becoming increasingly valuable. In prior work we proposed the "Visual Wiki" concept to describe and implement web-based information management applications. By focusing on the integration of two promising approaches, visualizations and collaboration tools, our Visual Wiki work explored synergies and demonstrated the value of the concept. Building on this, we introduce "VikiBuilder" , a Visual Wiki meta-tool, which provides end-user supported modeling and automatic generation of Visual Wiki instances. We describe the design and implementation of the VikiBuilder including its architecture, a domain specific visual language for modeling Visual Wikis, and automatic generation of those. To demonstrate the utility of the tool, we have used it to construct a variety of different Visual Wikis. We describe the construction of Visual Wikis and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of our meta-tool approach. 0 0

CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2009 While the amount of available information on the Web is increasing rapidly, the problem of managing it becomes more difficult. We present two applications, Thinkbase and Thinkpedia, which aim to make Web content more accessible and usable by utilizing visualizations of the semantic graph as a means to navigate and explore large knowledge repositories. Both of our applications implement a similar concept: They extract semantically enriched contents from a large knowledge spaces (Freebase and Wikipedia respectively), create an interactive graph-based representation out of it, and combine them into one interface together with the original text based content. We describe the design and implementation of our applications, and provide a discussion based on an informal evaluation. 0 0

CEUR Workshop Proceedings English 2008 Thinkbase is a visual navigation and exploration tool for Freebase, an open, shared database of the world's knowledge. Thinkbase extracts the contents, including semantic relationships, from Freebase and visualizes them using an interactive visual representation. Providing a focus plus context view the visualization is displayed along with the Freebase article. Thinkbase provides a proof of concept of how visualizations can improve and support Semantic Web applications. The application is available via http://thinkbase.cs.auckland.ac. nz. 0 0
