IF you're just fishing for ideas, it may be worth looking through some of the services that are already out there or that have been hacked around citation services.

For example:



There are also visualisations around other sorts of edge, for example 'people who bought also bought' edges in Amazon data:

Subject: [School-of-data] Any suggestions/links on how to visualize heavily     cross-referenced documents


I (will) have a large set of documents that are heavily
cross-referenced with citations. Assuming I can extract those
citations, I am trying to figure out the best way for a user to
navigate the documents using that.

I can do basic 'related documents' and basic visualization of
one-degree of separation. I also thought about maybe putting related
documents on an interactive timeline.

But I am also looking for further ideas or examples. Especially, for
ideas that support navigation and are not just pretty.

I would appreciate any links to books, presentations, live examples.
