Semantic-Web and ontology-based information processing systems are established technologies and techniques, in more than only research areas and institutions. Different worldwide projects and enterprise companies identified already the added value of semantic technologies and work on different sub-topics for gathering and conveying knowledge. As the process of gathering and structuring semantic information plays a key role in the most developed applications, the process of transferring and adopting knowledge to and by humans is neglected, although the complex structure of knowledge-design opens many research-questions. The following paper describes a new approach for visualizing semantic information as a composition of different adaptable ontology-visualization techniques. We start with a categorized description of existing ontology visualization techniques and show potential gaps. After that the new approach will be described and its added value to existing systems. A case study within the greatest German program for semantic information processing will show the usage of the system in real scenarios.
