Extispicious Visualizations

Posted on September 12, 2006

I am not too sure how I came across this, but I did => kevan.org/extispicious. It appears to have been around for a while, but this is the first time that I have seen them.

There are two versions, the text version as well as an image version. They both take your delicious user account name and create a visualization of the tags used within the given account. Although the idea itself is not revolutionary, I do like being able to see this type of data in a more interesting way.

I find the text version to be far more interesting than the photos version, and it also allows for more interesting navigation possibilities. I wonder if someone could push the navigation even farther. Maybe you can zoom in to see some of the smaller links and move around the space a little bit more. As an exploration tool, this could be very cool. But as a tool to find what you are looking for, the delicious UI is working pretty well for me.

Here is my text version:
