Abstract

Wikipedia maintains a linear record of edit history with article content and meta-information for each article, which conceals precious information on how each article has evolved. This demo describes the motivation and features of WikiReviz, a visualization system for analyzing edit history in Wikipedia and other Wiki systems. From the official exported edit history of a single Wikipedia article, WikiReviz reconstructs the derivation relationships among revisions precisely and efficiently by revision graph extraction and indicate meaningful article evolution progress by edit summarization.
