	abstract	 = {A mass increase of information has been observed in the last years. The web has undergone a phase of rapid growth regarding content and became an important medium. This growth led to new challenges for users to satisfy their information
needs, as well as for service providers to store content and make it easily accessible. Researches have proposed new approaches that improve the quality of search machines, the accuracy of ranking algorithms, and the performance of storing systems. However, they neglect the role of the interface that visually presents this information and assists the user in finding it. Thus, these approaches are only usable if the interface used is optimised to serve the users. This thesis describes the dominant approach used today to search and explore text data. Then, it proposes a navigation model that improves these approaches. In order to proof the theory of this navigation model, three interfaces are implemented. These interfaces integrate the data of a service that is used to search for research data. This service serves as case study to evaluate the results. The evaluation is conducted with test users and discussed at the end of the thesis.},
