Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DISPLAYING AND NAVIGATING A DATA STRUCTURE ON A DISPLAY UNIT
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL POUR AFFICHER ET NAVIGUER DANS UNE STRUCTURE DE DONNEES SUR UN DISPOSITIF D'AFFICHAGE
Abstract
(EN)
A method of displaying a data structure (e.g., web site) having a base node (e.g., an index web page) and a number of child nodes (e.g., linked web pages) commences with a spider thread building a distinct memory map for each parent/child node family within the parent/child structure (293). A wire frame view is then defined for the relevant child nodes (294). A number of links are then displayed, each link connecting the graphic representation associated with the base node with a segment of the surface of the multi-dimensional framework that has been assigned to a child node (296).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé d'affichage d'une structure de données (p. ex. un site Web) comportant un noeud de base (p. ex. une page Web d'index) et un certain nombre de noeuds enfants (p. ex. des pages Web liées), qui commence par la construction, par une unité d'exécution de moteur de recherche Web, d'une topographie de mémoire distincte pour chaque famille de noeuds parents/enfants d'une structure parent/enfant (293). Une vue du type fil de fer est ensuite définie pour les noeuds enfants (294) pertinents. Un certain nombre de liens sont ensuite affichés, chaque lien reliant la représentation graphique associée au noeud de base à un segment de la surface de la structure multidimensionnelle qui a été affectée à un noeud enfant (296).
