Project Description:
Coordinated by the Institute for Philosophical Research and in cooperation the Hungarian Ministry of Information and Communicaton and the Hungarian Academy of Science, this knowledge network is an attempt to visualize the relationships among main subject areas within the Hungarian Virtual Encyclopedia. Based on a force directed algorithm (spring algorithm) this highly complex and detailed interactive piece allows the user to navigate between a large variety of words, such as atom, information, Descartes or ADSL, and see all the inherent relationships between them.

All the entries (in Hungarian) were edited by highly recognized researchers of the field. When accessing the Encyclopedia website, a user can just click on "cimdokumentumok terkepe", in the upper right corner of every entry, for a map of the interlinkage of the entries to appear.
