Abstract

One of the critical issues for development of the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS), or taxonomy of medical terms, is the identification of semantic features and relationships that should be represented in the UMLS and the design of the appropriate structure for storing and displaying these features and relationships. One approach, the use of the 'fisheye view' for displaying a region of interest in a semantic network, is discussed. This approach narrows the field of view at any given time to include only the most important and immediate 'landmarks', or items. Any of these could then be focused on or another level of detail accessed.
