I have been coming across many del.icio.us tools to visualize usage during my daily researching hours. So many, that I have decided to start making note of the ones I come across. From the span of about two weeks, I have been collecting as many as I could find. I will list each one along with a description. Enjoy!
- HubLog: Graph del.icio.us related tags – You can graphically browse related del.icio.us tags as mind mapping in this Java applet.
- Extisp.icio.us Text – Gives you a random textual scattering of a user’s tags, sized according to the number of times that they’ve used each of them, and leaves you to draw your own insights from the overlapping entrails.
- Extisp.icio.us Images – Displays a random Yahoo images search result for each of a user’s tag words (excluding those which they’ve only ever used once).
- Revealicious – A set of graphic visualisations for your del.icio.us account that allow you to browse, search and select tags, as well as viewing posts matching them.
- del.icio.us tag clouds – Lets you cluster your del.icio.us bookmarks into tag clouds. You can check the results and adjust the clustering later.
- Delicious Soup – A tool that reveals your del.icio.us activities. This visualization looks excellent, it’s fun, and uses Macromedia Flash.
- Vox Delicii – Flash application to help you visualize the most popular sites being added to del.icio.us.
- Del.icio.us Popular Treemap – View the popular bookmarks at del.icio.us in a cool treemap
- Cloudalicious – Watching tag clouds over time for a given URL
- Del.icio.us Mind Map Maker – This service will make a Clustered Mind Map out of your delicious entries. Note that it will be able to be seen by anyone.
- Mapping with Anthracite and OmniGraffle – Ruben R. Puentedura’s tutorial on making maps with Anthracite and OmniGraffle.
- LiveMarks - Don’t know if you consider this as a visual, but I do. It is the activity of del.icio.us, but live.
- HubLog: Graph del.icio.us subscriptions network – Another HubLog visualization to browse the network of del.icio.us users as defined by their inbox subscription lists.
- Del.icio.us direc.tor – An alternative web-based rich UI for del.icio.us that uses AJAX. Provides a good way of searching and sorting through your bookmarks.
- DeliciousMind – A neat tool to create an XML structure of your bookmarks so you can import it into FreeMind Mind Mapping software.
- Mapping Del.icio.us – Plots locations on the world map from del.icio.us geotags.
- Your del.icio.us top sources – Nivi had proposed a $50 bounty to who can make a del.icio.us tool to see your top bookmark sources. Looks like it is a done deal!
There’s a couple more that I have in mind, but they don’t seem to be working at the moment. When they are working again, I will be sure to update the list. Also, if you know of any more, please feel free to comment or contact me! Hope you enjoyed my little roundup!
