Thinkbase is a visual navigation and exploration tool for Freebase, an open, shared database of the world's knowledge. Thinkbase extracts the contents, including semantic relationships, from Freebase and visualizes them using an interactive visual representation. Providing a focus plus context view the visualization is displayed along with the Freebase article. Thinkbase provides a proof of concept of how visualizations can improve and support Semantic Web applications. The application is available via http://thinkbase.cs.auckland.ac. nz.
