Project Description:
Visuwords - Online Graphical Dictionary is a visual thesaurus that looks up words to find their meanings and associations with other words and concepts. It produces an interactive graph where one can easily perceive the different word associations, as well as click the nodes and continuously expand the graph.

Visuwords uses Princeton University's WordNet, an opensource database built by University students and language researchers. Combined with a visualization tool and user interface built from a combination of modern web technologies, Visuwords is available as a free resource to all patrons of the web.
