Final Thesis: Realization of a Fine-grained Document History Overlay

Abstract: Wikis enable the maintenance of a collective knowledge base on the Internet and although they already have some prerequisites for collaborative work, they lack essential functions for the productive handling of shared articles.

The web-based collaboration platform Sweble uses the so-called Wiki Object Model as an alternative to common markup languages and allows a graph based storage of documents. Thus Sweble provides the potential to visualize the editing process of documents and to raise collective knowledge management to a new level.

The goal of this thesis is therefore to extend the Sweble software in a way that history information of a document can be processed and displayed in a user-friendly way. The user interface should offer users intuitive and clear access to additional information and statistics.

Keywords: editive, sweble, engineering, visualization
