The InfoVis 2004 contest led to the development of several bibliography visualization systems. Even though each of these systems o#ers some unique views of the bibliography data, there is no single best system o#ering all the desired views. We have thus studied how to consolidate the desirable functionalities of these systems into a cohesive design.
We have also designed a few novel visualization methods. This paper presents our findings and creation: BiblioViz, a bibliography visualization system that gives the maximum number of views of the data using a minimum number of visualization constructs in a unified fashion.
