The application of visualization technology on knowledge management
The application of the visualization technology on the knowledge management can be addressed in three aspects: the visualization for knowledge discovery, the visualization of knowledge representations and the visualization of information organization. The visualization for knowledge discovery refers to discover knowledge by visualization techniques based on analyzing and processing original data. The visualization of knowledge representations includes visually display the knowledge and rules discovered by data mining and other knowledge discovery techniques for making knowledge facilitate understanding. The Conceptual Map, Cognitive Map and Mind Map are useful explorations of visualization technology in the research field of knowledge organization.
