Enlightening the Sun: A User Interface to Explore Music Artists via Multimedia Content.
Sprache des Titels:
This article 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.
We further investigated, in a first user study, different term weighting strategies to
generate the visualization. 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.
