Exploring Music Artists via Descriptive Terms and Multimedia Content

This paper presents an approach to browse collections of web
pages about music artists by means of descriptive terms and multimedia
content. To this end, a user interface called Three-Dimensional Co-
Occurrence Browser (3D-COB) is introduced. 3D-COB automatically
extracts and weights terms from artist-related web pages. This textual
information is complemented with information on the multimedia content
found on the web pages. For the user interface of 3D-COB, we
elaborated a three-dimensional extension of the Sunburst visualization
technique. The hierarchical data to be visualized is obtained by analyzing
the web pages for combinations of co-occurring terms that are highly
ranked by a term weighting function.
As for evaluation, we investigated different term weighting strategies in a
first user study. A second user study was carried out to assess ergonomic
aspects of 3D-COB, especially its usefulness for gaining a quick overview
of a set of web pages and for efficiently browsing within this set.
