Abstract

Tagging is one of the most popular services in Web 2.0 and folksonomy is a representation of collaborative tagging. Tag cloud has been the one and only visualization of the folksonomy. The tag cloud, however, provides no information about the relations between tags. In this paper, targeting del.icio.us tag data, we propose a technique, FolksoViz, for automatically deriving semantic relations between tags and for visualizing the tags and their relations. In order to find the equivalence, subsumption, and similarity relations, we apply various rules and models based on the Wikipedia corpus. The derived relations are visualized effectively. The experiment shows that the FolksoViz manages to find the correct semantic relations with high accuracy.
