Abstract

We describe a visual navigation interface that can organize the relevant information in a forum systematically and provide better pathways for accessing content of a medical forum. The interface consists of a smart keyword navigation graph and a smart user navigation graph. These graphs show the frequently occurring keywords in the forum posts and the users who make the posts, along with the links among them. On clicking a node or a link, one can access the top N posts related to the keywords or users. The paper describes our methodology and its implementation for the posts on an IBS forum.
