I've seena few mind mapping tools like that. Here's a web one That shows
links between sites by the concepts they are linked with.

Subject: [clug] [OT] X-Space (old Apple(?) project)

Does anyone remember a project called "x-space" (or something similar,
vague I know) where one could navigate through a "space" of words that
were linked in some way (for example, topics in a
dictionary) by "zooming in", during which process the space renderer
would show or hide linkages that became more relevant at a particular
level of "zoom"?

 From memory, at the "top" level you'd see a few nodes linked together,
which were the most "important" nodes in the network. Then as you "zoom
in" on one node, you'd see more linked nodes appearing (and more nodes
appearing that were linked to linked nodes) around the node of interest,
with links disappearing from the peer nodes at the new "top" of

Vague enough?

I think it was one of the first interesting examples of Java programming
that I remember, so this would have been some time around 2002.
