The Semantic Web is a powerful technology for organizing the data in our information based society. The collection and organization of information is an important step for showing important information to interested people. But the usage of such semantic-based data sources depends on effective and efficient information visualizations. Currently different kinds of visualizations in general and visualization metaphors do exist. Many of them are also applied for semantic data source, but often they are designed for semantic web experts and neglecting the normal user and his perception of an easy useable visualization. This kind of user needs less information, but rather a reduced qualitative view on the data. These two aspects of large amount of existing data and one for normal users easy to understand visualization is often not reconcilable. In this paper we create a concept for a visualization to show a bigger set of information to such normal users without overstraining them, because of layer-based data visualization, next to an integration of a Focus and Context metaphor.
