Visualizing Linked Jazz: A Web-based Tool for Social Network Analysis and Exploration
Matthew Miller, Jeff Walloch and Cristina Pattuelli

Monday, 6:30pm


Summary

This paper intends to demonstrate that recent improvements in web-based technology have made the creation of web-based network visualizations a viable and appealing possibility. We showcase a network visualization tool made for the Linked Jazz project (http://www.linkedjazz.com/network) which utilizes a number of interactive and multimedia features to deliver an engaging experience to a wide audience. We briefly explore the history, the benefits, and possible limitations of this web-based approach.
