SemaSpace Version 1

SemaSpace Version 1

The first version of SemaSpace was developed out of the need for a fast and powerful browser for semantic networks that involve a lot of visual content. Semaspace, a joint project with Gerhard Dirmoser, resulted in an interactive network editor and browser that was based on the web3d technology virtools, which is unfortunately now obsolete. SemaSpace was used for early projects like the ‘landscape of thoughts’, a textual analysis of statements and attitudes towards the European Union, and the first version of Gerhard Dirmoser’s Ars Electronica Thesaurus. The tool was used in exhibitions since 2004, released to the public in early 2006, and later replaced by the java version developed in 2007-09
