RefViz D7D6 The Galaxy visualization is an interactive framework that lets you explore thematic relationships in your reference collection. In this visualization, each point '' represents a single reference and each paper icon '' represents a group of references. The Galaxy view is a proximity map; the result of multidimensional comparisons to calculate similarities amongst references and principle components analysis to present them in a two dimensional view. Hence, it is not a typical X-Y scatter-plot in which moving along one axis means increasing or decreasing a single value. References and groups located near each other in the visualization are similar in content and unrelated references are spaced farther apart. Thus, it is possible to understand, at a glance, how every reference is related conceptually to every other reference in the set. This organization also results in a logical flow of the information contained in the reference set making it easy to learn the main concepts discussed in the database and focus on areas of interest.
