Visualizing the VIVO Profile Ecosystem Using CTSAsearch
mediaposted on 29.10.2015, 21:35 by David Eichmann
CTSAsearch (http://research.icts.uiowa.edu/polyglot) is a federated search engine using VIVO-compliant Linked Open Data published by 64 institutions using six distinct platforms. In aggregate, CTSAsearch has data on ~140,000 researchers and their ~8,300,000 publications. Since its introduction in 2013, the query and visualization mechanisms in CTSAsearch have proven to be the primary elements of user interest. I first present a number of comparative analytic visualizations, characterizing distinctions between classes in the set of institutions as a whole. The remainder of the presentation then covers my approaches to query formulation and visualization.
