Meg Richards – Looking Outwards – 4: The Stanford Dissertation Browser

by Meg Richards @ 4:06 am 17 January 2011

The Stanford Dissertation Browser is an interface for viewing the relationships between Stanford departments based on a text model applied to dissertation abstracts. The Browser is an excellent model of presenting data flexibly and from multiple perspectives: Relationships are presented based on the selection of a department, and a different selection re-forms the presentation. It would take two times the number of departments times the number of years in simple pictures to present the same amount of data that this interactive visualization contains. This presentation method isn’t limited to dissertation abstracts or even text analysis, but could represent any relationship between nodes in a set over time or some other convenient form of progression.
