Interest for an online tool to easily investigate networks?
I’m Sébastien Heymann from Gephi. We’re applying for the Knight News Challenge, with the idea of proposing an intuitive tool to enable the intuitive investigation of networks of all kind (social, money, semantic, etc.), and reporting evidences easily within published stories.
On our online platform, users would:
- Upload data or import them from services (ScraperWiki, PANDA, DocumentCloud, …).
- Explore data and sketch visuals.
- Brand and design static, animated, or interactive graphics.
- Publish them on newspapers, Web, mobile, tablets, or TV.
What do you think about the idea? Do you have any case you would find it useful?
Our short proposal (500 words) is freely available here, we’re welcoming early feedback and criticisms.
