    Abstract

    Ontology bases are sets of binary fact types called lexons. This paper discusses LexoVis, a lexon visualization tool that addresses the inherent size and scale of ontology bases. LexoVis facilitates the analysis of lexons by taking a well-ordered approach and provides overview and detail by employing the graphical fisheye view. Furthermore, different ordering and clustering heuristics incorporated in LexoVis offer insights into ontology bases not explicit in text-based representations.
