    Abstract

    This paper presents algorithmic approaches for the transformation of list based search results from a semantic search engines (i.e. SemSearch) into a visual representation. We present the results and methodology of our preliminary implementation of the semantic search visualization engine (ViSS). ViSS, takes as input the semantic structure of semantic search results and reproduces them into a summarized, conclusive and meaningful graphical representation. Depending on the semantic search results our algorithms select the best visual representations.The current version of ViSS supports visual formats of directed graphs, charts and tables.
