To date, many web visualization applications have shown the usefulness of a hyperbolic tree. However, we have discovered that strict hierarchical tree structures are too limited. For many practical applications, we need to generalize a hyperbolic tree to a hyperbolic space. This approach results in massive cross-links in a highly connected graph that clutter the display. To resolve this problem, an invisible link technique is introduced. In this paper. we describe the navigation in a large hyperbolic space using invisible links in some detail. We have applied this invisible link method to three data mining visualization applications: e-business web navigation for URL visits, customer call center for question-answer service, and web site index creation.
