Abstract: This paper presents a method for visualising possible sequences of information. Possible sequences of information segments, often called scenarios, have been used as a tool for exploring and stimulating thinking about possible events, assumptions relating to these events, and courses of actions, i.e., chances for a broad range of information designers from public audiences searching on the internet to analysts and policy makers. It is a laborious task to grab an overview of information space. In this research, we design and develop a series of generative systems that visualises possible contexts.

Keywords: generative systems; context; scenario generation; information sequences; visualisation; possible events; information design; possible contexts.
