Heiko Haller receives Ted Nelson Newcomer Award at Hypertext 2010 by ACM SIGWEB
Heiko Haller, member of the knowledge management team at FZI, is rewarded with the Ted Nelson Newcomer Award, an ACM SIGWEB award, for this work on "iMapping – A Zooming User Interface Approach for Personal and Semantic Knowledge Management" at the Hypertext 2010 Conference in Toronto.
iMapping is a zooming based approach for visually organizing information objects. It was developed on top of semantic desktop technologies and especially targets the support of personal knowledge management. iMapping has been designed to combine the advantages of spatial hypertext and other proven visual mapping approaches like mind-mapping and concept mapping, which are incompatible in their original form. iMapping bridges the gap between unstructured content like informal text notes and semantic models by allowing annotations with the whole range from vague associations to formal relations.
