    Abstract:
    Gnovis is a novel application for all scholars and teachers in the humanities that will, in the long run, permit the re-conceptualization of data that have until recently been presented in rigid, non-individualized formats. Gnovis is a first attempt at producing an engine that can display corpora of knowledge in multi-dimensional environments, allowing for the visualization of extensive amounts of material organized semantically in nested clusters. We plan to implement a prototype visual interface for a compact but detailed set of knowledge in the humanities. Our goal is to explore different visualization styles and interfaces. We are interested in creating a more fluid style of interface than the current web-page paradigm where a click can take you to a new page, more smoothly navigable even than the Google maps style which allows the user to drag information from out of the current view.
    Notes:
    Advanced development of multiple flexible and re-usable user interfaces that would allow for the display of large amounts of data organized semantically. Two core datasets will serve as the focus of the start-up activities: historical composers of music, and a corpus of Renaissance Spanish literature.
