The exploration of heterogenous information spaces requires suitable mining methods as well as effective visual interfaces. Most of the existing systems concentrate either on mining algorithms or on visualization techniques. This paper describes a flexible framework for visual data mining which combines analytical and visual methods to achieve a better understanding of the information space. We provide several pre-processing methods for unstructured information spaces, such as a flexible hierarchy generation with user-controlled refinement. Moreover, we develop new visualization techniques, including an intuitive focus+context technique to visualize complex hierarchical graphs. A special feature of our system is a new paradigm for visualizing information structures within their frame of reference
