Making sense of chaos - Helpful visualization of a corpus of structured content
Is it possible to have helpful visualization of structured, modular content (in this case, structured, modular is DITA)? And what can this information tell the technical communicators? Even more than with monolithic content, modular content creates more files to manage and the tagging may seem cumbersome.
The assortment of formats included in a content corpus can make the identification of content more difficult (images, videos, XML files, and so on.) However, there are many possibilities to visualize the data in an easy and meaningful way. In this presentation, I'd like to offer a few of the most effective solutions and offer some conclusions that can help the technical communicator.
