WebTOC: A Tool to Visualize and Quantify Web Sites using a Hierarchical Table of Contents Browser

Video demonstration from the 1998 CHI conference. WebTOC is a method for visualizing the contents of a website with a hierarchical table of contents using a java program and applet. WebTOC automatically generates an expand/contract table of contents that provides graphical information indicating the number of elements on branches of the hierarchy as well as elementsŐ individual and cumulative sizes. Colors can be used to represent other attributes such as file type and provide a rich overview of the site for users and managers of the site. Early results from user studies suggest that WebTOC is easily learned and can assist users in navigating websites. Author(s): David Nation
