I'm a big fan of diagrams and tree charts. Here is my first attempt in visualising a linked list structure. This kind of list is different to a normal tree structure as there is no top-down hierarchy, but links that can also go circular and create a loop.
I build this little application which tries to visualize the ties between the flash-related sites that I currently link to. My rough crawler could of course only read HTML so pure flash sites will probably show no outgoing links. At the moment the information gets served by a static XML file, but in the future I try to make it fully dynamic (perhaps it is even a better idea to crawl RSS feeds).
I used a spring model in this case so all the sites try to position themselves in a comfortable place. Beware! this will probably run ULTRA-SLOW on tiny CPUs.Posted at July 03, 2002 03:38 PM | Further reading
