To make knowledge visualizations clear and easy to interpret, a method was developed that extends and transforms traditional author co-citation analysis (ACA) by extracting structural patterns from the scientific literature and representing them in a 3D knowledge landscape. The method identifies intellectual groupings based on extending the traditional ACA, augmenting the existing document- and concept-centered approaches to knowledge visualization.
