Medical Informatics has been described as having a "long and delayed adolescence" which continues to "find itself in search of self-definition", and the AMIA Symposium Proceedings have been viewed as an indicator of trends in the field. This pilot study investigated the feasibility of applying a knowledge domain visualization approach to clarifying the domain of medical informatics based on the AMIA publications. Document co-citation analysis (DCA) is combined with Pathfinder Network Scaling (PFNET), visualization, and animation to develop a 3-D knowledge landscape.
