These visualisations were built using R and Shiny, here's a basic overview of what Shiny is.
Dr. Arno Bosse approached the IDN to request their support in building an interactive visualisation of a subset of the Cultures of Knowledge letter correspondance network. We collaborated on two different views of the data, one Shiny app that shows the
entire network and another that allows the network to be explored by choosing to see the connections of user-selected individuals.
The visualisation makes use of the following charts:
- Filterable graph network - useful for showing the overall connectivity of a dataset
- Network graph of selected individuals - useful to explore a network from the viewpoint of a set of specified individuals
