We study a document collection based on the implicit associations among the documents and on the explicit links, such as hypertext links, citations or author names, that exist among the documents. The paper presents a visualization method that gives an overview of a document collection, where both implicit and explicit links are shown. Both hypertext and nonhypertext document collections may be visualized. The technique presented shows promise in providing a tool for presenting a holistic view of a document collection.
