CTML: a mark up language for holographic representation of document based knowledge. (English) Zbl 1127.68440

Summary: This chapter is specifically meant to illustrate an articulated framework for information visualization based upon a set of conceptual tools meant to promote qualitative reasoning in documentation management.
The complexity of our information world today poses the immediate and urgent need for powerful conceptual tools, enabling individuals to cope with daily communicative activities which have become more and more complex.
On the other side decision makers in our interconnected world need to reach the top level of accuracy and be able minimize the risk of fuzziness and misinterpretation which may be caused by lack of originating context, where a certain information was first produced or by continuously shifting contexts throughout a diversity of media and cultures.
CTML, the Context Transport Mark up Language, is a high power derivative language of CPP-TRS, the Communicative Positioning Program-Text Representation Systems, which is a widely tested and comprehensive methodology based upon a consistent set of dynamic visuals, to be used in combinations meant to teach individuals how to represent those cognitively different textual operations they perform, while they are writing and reading in multimedia environnments.
CTML, which may definitely be viewed as a really advanced and a highly specialized sublanguage on its own; is also a mark up system meant empower already existing advanced information systems.
As a controlled language on its own it is meant to enable verification of asymmetries which are likely to occur in interpretation of those very documents, which are most subject to continuous change, revision and further updates.
