What they say[edit]

“[O]ften a picture or graphic can be easier to grasp than a wordy description. The Ontopia Vizigator (’vi[z]ual navigator’) uses a graphical interface to provide an additional method of topic map navigation. Although Vizigator can be used on its own, it is also well-suited to complement a text-based interface. The following is a graphical visualization of the Puccini topic, with additional detail about one of his operas, Tosca.

Vizigator consists of three components which are related/dependent on each other.

VizDesktop(tm) – designer’s configuration tool

VizDesktop can be used without any other OKS browsing environment. However, it is primarily a configuration tool for application designers to determine whether and/or how various topic types and associations will be graphically displayed.

VizLet(tm) – reusable applet component

All of the visualization capability of VizDesktop, but without the configuration toolkit, VizLet can be used within other web applications to bring topic map visualization to any web site,

VizPlugin(tm) – Omnigator plug-in

Based on VizLet, VizPlugin can be used to visualize any topic currently under view in Omnigator.”
