See a screenshot of the application and a rendered map of a sample link structure below.

HyperSpider (Java app) collects the link structure of a website. Data import/export from/to database and CSV-files. Export to Graphviz DOT, Resource Description Framework (RDF/DC), XML Topic Maps (XTM), Prolog, HTML. Visualization as hierarchy and map.

This Java application collects the link structure of a website by following the hyperlinks. Various export formats are supported which makes this project unique, especially concerning RDF and XTM which allows to import the data into forthcoming visualization/analysis tools. Also, the way a hierarchy is deducted from the mesh of webpages (using 'minimal click paths') is an out-of-the-ordinary solution.
