The project Related Pages [looksgood.de] consists of small, minimal force-directed network visualization located in the sidebar of a wiki webpage. The graph shows the "proximity" of the content on visited webpage in the context of a whole website. The visualization aims at offering the user an alternative possibility to navigate across the wiki from the School of the Arts in Schwäbisch Gmünd [hfg-gmuend.de], Germany.
Contrary to the conventional hierarchical way to navigate online (i.e. following an hierarchical "menu"), the focus of this kind of navigation is on the "proximity" (relevance?) of the content that is being displayed. The proximity of a page is calculated as followed: it must have at least 1 tag in common with the current page, being linked to the current page, being linked with outgoing links on the current page, or being at a level above in the breadcrumb-navigation.
The red dot represents the actual webpage. The gray tones denote the time since the last update of the webpage. The distance between the nodes conveys the distance of the content.
