home > guide: how to use the relation browser (topics)

Working with the Relation Browser is very easy. Here is the first view of the system:

Relation Browser Start

When you hover over a bubble, it enlarges:

Relation Browser Focus

Then, when you click on the bubble, the diagram dynamically re-arranges to display the new node's closest concepts:

Relation Browser First Click

You can then continue to click on bubbles to, in essence, "swim" through the concept space in this portal. If you get lost or want to return to a previous state, then click back on the breadcrumb links at the top of the page.

You will also notice that tabs for Maps, Links, etc appear below the bubbles when there are web links available, or there is information elsewhere on the portal, that relate to the centre node.  Click on the tab to access this information.
