Paperscape – Interactive Map Visualizing the arXiv

Paperscape – Interactive Map Visualizing the arXiv
http://paperscape.org/

Paperscape is an interactive map that visualizes the arXiv, an open, online repository for scientific research papers. Each paper is represented by a circle, with the size of a circle related to how often that paper has been cited (referred to) – a measure of its impact. The papers are clustered together according to how they reference each other i.e. share information. This is done by modeling the papers as particles in a physical system, with references acting as attractive forces between papers. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.
