Viz: Visual Thesaurus

Visual Thesaurus is an interactive visualization tool. It displays the synonyms and antonyms of a word and branches out in a iterative manner when clicked on the meaning of the same word. The interactive mannerism of the visualization encourages the reader to further search on the words.
The branching display of the visualizations help in precise understanding of words in English.
