Knowledge workers who want to apply knowledge visualization have to determine which visualization tool is suitable for their needs. To support knowledge workers in this sophisticated problem a systematic approach is presented that matches typical tasks in knowledge management to visualization techniques that support these tasks. Knowledge workers are provided with a three dimensional decision matrix that enables them to easily identify a suitable visualization technique for a certain knowledge problem. To be able to systematically evaluate and identify adequate visualization techniques a set of evaluation criteria is introduced.
