Concept Map of a Book

We developed an automated system that constructs a concept map of a given book as a network, using its PDF. The map shows the relationship between concepts throughout the book, with links connecting concepts in related chapters and sections. The resultant network can be used by readers to get an idea of the concepts covered in the book, their placement in chapters and their interrelation. It can also be used to locate and focus on concepts of interest. The system was implemented using Python.
