Based on analyzing the relation between knowledge visualization and information visualization, this paper points out that concept map, semantic map, causal map and visual metaphor can effectively represent tacit knowledge, and then constructs a model of tacit knowledge conversion based on knowledge visualization, considering the requirements of tacit knowledge conversion. Lastly, it discusses key issues in the process of applying the model with a case of Ideaquarium.

Key wordsKnowledge visualization      Knowledge conversion      Tacit knowledge
