YWeb - Automated Interactive Sitemap Generation

In this project we investigate new methods for the visualization of WWW localities.

Currently, a prototype application has been implemented that enables the automatic generation of ready-to-use, interactive Web sitemaps from various data sources and boasts the following features:
  • Real cross platform capability by using JAVA 2 and the Y Files API.
  • Open system through XML data exchange standards and code availability
  • New structure-based visualization approach that uses logical domains as the basis of visualization and interaction.
  • New usage-based sitemap approach by using popular user paths through the locality as the basis of visualization and interaction.
  • Large Web localities supported with up to 20.000 nodes
  • Robustness by accepting a large variety of different input Web site types.
