Abstract

Knowledge work in many fields requires examining several aspects of a collection of documents to attain meaningful understanding that is not explicitly available. Despite recent advances in document corpus visualization research, there is still a lack of principled approaches which enable the users to personalize the exploratory analysis process. In this paper, we present IVEA (Information Visualization for Exploratory Document Collection Analysis), an innovative visualization tool which employs the PIMO (Personal Information Model) ontology to provide the knowledge workers with an interactive interface allowing them to browse for information in a personalized manner. Not only does the tool allow the users to integrate their personal knowledge into the exploration and analysis of a document collection, it also enables them to incrementally enrich their PIMO ontologies with new entities matching their evolving interests in the process, benefiting the users not only in their future experience with IVEA but also with other PIMO-based applications. The usability of the tool was preliminarily evaluated and the results were sufficiently encouraging to make it worthwhile to conduct a larger-scale usability study.
