Award-winning visualization of all institutions in the world
Even though universities think of themselves as institutions of the world, the geographical location of them plays an important role for scientists. So far, no system has linked the geographical location of institutions and the expertise that they have. This is important for understand how and why institutions collaborate and how they get funded. In this project, we analyzed all the institutions that are available in PubMed Open Access subset and modeled their expertise and collaboration network. We also analyzed the NIH funding levels through time. Our web-based visualization obtained the 2nd place in the Northwestern Visualization Challenge Competition of 2015.
