Abstract : The author describes various end-user applications that were built using the ISI Grapher, a portable software tool for displaying graphs pictorially. She enumerates numerous current research projects that already utilize the ISI Grapher, and also outlines several general domains where a grapher would be of considerable benefit. Throughout this paper, the term user denotes a person who is using the ISI Grapher for who is using some application that is built on top of the ISI Grapher, such as the NIKL/LOOM Browser.) On the other hand, the term application-builder will be used to denote a person who is actually building an application using the ISI Grapher as a foundation. Keywords: Artificial intelligence; Graph algorithms; User interfaces.
