Abstract The ability to browse an information space in a structured way by exploiting similarities and dissimilarities between information objects is crucial for knowledge discovery. Knowledge maps use visualizations to gain insights into the structure of large-scale information spaces, but are still far away from being applicable for searching. The paper proposes a use case for enhancing search term recommendations by heat map visualizations of co-word relationships taken from indexing vocabulary. By contrasting areas of different “heat” the user is enabled to indicate mainstream areas of the field in question more easily. (author's abstract)
