Hawk - Guided TourHere is the graph view in greater detail. By going from the top (universe, which stands for "all objects matched") downward, the query is restricted by subsequently adding sub-queries.
Hawk uses the following graphical metaphors:
- a little triangle denotes a concept with its successors hidden. The hidden successors can be displayed by single clicking the node.
- the grey "odometer" style rectangle represents the relative cardinality of the sub-concepts (in other words: what percentage of all hits is under this node)
- color reflects the conceptual distance (a measure for "similarity") between the current focus concept and the other elements
