Michael Curtotti and Dr. Eric McCreath, both of Australian National University Research School of Computer Science, presented a paper entitled Enhancing the Visualization of Law, at LVI 2012: Law via the Internet Conference, 9 October 2012, at the Legal Information Institute, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA.
Here is the abstract:
This paper reviews the state of the art in online visualization of legislation. It reviews practice, particularly in public good and official sites. The review establishes a considerable diversity of practice but an absence of an apparent best practice. Drawing on information visualization and knowledge visualization, the paper discusses the need for a theoretical framework for legislative visualization and for evaluation. Work on the visualization of definitions is presented.
