Spatial Hypertext

Visualisation of text elements where meaning is shown through the layout. No connecting lines in the pure form but they can be used. An analog equivalent could be a pin-board or lots of paper on a table.

“To fuzzily relate two items, they are simply placed near to each other, but maybe not quite as near as to a third object. This allows for so-called “constructive ambiguity” (Shipman and Marshall, 1999b) and is an intuitive way to deal with vague relations and orders.”

Argument Map

A visual representation of the structure of an argument.

A number of different kinds of argument map have been proposed but the most common, which Chris Reed and Glenn Rowe called the standard diagram,[4] consists of a tree structure with each of the reasons leading to the conclusion. There is no consensus as to whether the conclusion should be at the top of the tree with the reasons leading up to it or whether it should be at the bottom with the reasons leading down to it.[4] Another variation diagrams an argument from left to right.

Knowledge Mapping

“A knowledge map is a tool for presenting what knowledge resides where (e.g. people, media, organizational units or sources of knowledge outside the organisation) and for demonstrating the patterns of knowledge flow (access, distribution, learning).
