Citation networks are very dense and large networks. The visualization of such dense networks is a tough task. Furthermore, most of the available tools provide visualization of such networks in the form of static images. However, the static images are not of any use for the users as user cannot interact with the system and cannot find the required information. In this paper, we have implemented a system that generates a dynamic network of citations. We have used CiteSeer dataset for citation network. We have provided the functionalities where a user can magnify the shown graph and can view all the citations of the required selected paper in a radial tree form. We have also provided a lens facility that provides a hyperbolic view and user can zoom in and out the graph in the area of lens. We created this citation network in Pajek tool and then extended the tool by incorporating JUNG libraries of java.
