The amount of information organizations possess now days is overwhelming and the need of being capable of extracting valuable knowledge from such large amount of information is imperative. This thesis presents a software tool capable of extracting valuable knowledge (e.g. expertise) of a scientific community, generating relationships among community members automatically and revealing these relationships through a visualization tool. The types of relationships that this tool reveals are of the form of "who knows what" and "who can collaborate with whom" (both based on areas of expertise). The work presented was conducted and evaluated within the context of research institutions.
