What it is
Touchgraph is a proposal for a Java applet that renders interactive graphs. This extension extracts your wiki-content and stores it in XML-files that can be read by Touchgraph. A Touchgraph applet is rendered as part of a special page.

WikiViz is a MediaWiki extension to visualize semantic MediaWiki-content. The links between articles, categories, images, authors and urls are represented in different colors by a dynamic conceptual-map. WikiViz can be used as a cognitive-tool for knowledge-management or educational training.

1) only inks between existing articles
2) all links with external urls
3) full links
You cans also define which parameter schould define the size of the nodes:
a) the nomber of visits
b) the size of the article

WikiViz implements a modified version of the Touchgraph visualization-applet. It contains functionalities to extract the semantic content from the Mediawiki plateform and to construct the needed XML-files.
