Project Description:
"WebTracer is an project based on the intention to visualise the structure of the web. There are many applications that analyse websites for structural integrity and diagnostic purposes, but few reveal the visual structure that web hypertext creates. Webtracer represents this structure as a three dimensional molecular diagram, with pages as nodes(atoms) and links as the strings(atomic forces) that connect those nodes together."

Within the Webtracer environment the molecular structure of sites can be examined from any angle and any distance. Nodes can be selected to gain further information on their content and a browser launched to visit the corresponding page directly. The molecular structure of the site reflects both the sequence of hyperlinks within actual pages and also the internal structure of the host site's file system.
