Visual Tour

These feature generates a nice graph of connections among pages.

To see in action: <http://www.c2.com/cgi/tour?Wiki Wiki Web>

What you have to do is generate a .dot digraph file (see <http://c2.com/cgi/locale/w2.d2/Wiki Wiki Web.dot.dot.gif> , which isn't a gif), then pass it to a public GraphViz server like this <http://www.research.att.com/~north/cgi-bin/webdot1.7.11/webdot.cgi/http://c2.com/cgi/locale/w2.d2/Wiki Wiki Web.dot.dot.gif>

Pretty cool. I may do something down the road to generate such a map once in a while.

A parallel idea would be to use the same .dot format as a basis for a more scalable GUI front end to Wiki, equivalent to The Brain. The goal is super-fast traversal.
