etytree can visualize the etymological tree of a word, i.e.,
the etymology - or the origin of a word and the historical development of its meaning - in the form of a tree,
reconstructing its ancestral form, its cognate words, its derived words, etc.

This first version uses directed graphs instead of trees and extracts and parses data automatically from a dump of the English Wiktionary.

This project is open source (source code javascript, java) and uses d3 and Wiktionary. There is a SPARQL endpoint here. Data is under CC BY-SA.
In the current version you cannot edit the graph, you can indirectly edit it by editing Etymology sections of words in the English Wiktionary.
At each new release the database will be updated and the edits will be reflected into the graph.
