I must say that I'm impressed with this.
>*> There is a technology called d3.js that looks especially interesting: *

>*Leaving aside technicalities I think that*

>*is an illustration of an effective way to organize some mathematical *
>*structures/relationships. So far as I can see there is no reason calls *

>*this. The background explanations (obtained by clicking) could be *
>*expanded or linked to code. IMHO it's not complete but an excellent *
>*start for people trying to model statistical data. For instance draging *
>*and dropping particular distributions into an "analyser" for *

>*Of course the missing ingredient is an abstraction direction allowing *

I'd like to develop a similar diagram for Axiom categories listing all of
the axioms that underpin each category. The links would go to the section
of the book for that category. I already have an SVG graph of the categories,
domains, and packages on the Axiom website.
