Visualizing curatorial departments
Some of these are crude, maybe come off a bit clumsy – but early days yet. I’m still getting a handle on what content I can really use, and still have a load of questions; how precise is the geography data? how reliable are the dates? are there any meaningful connections between object records already noted in the metadata?
I’ll post links to working versions in subsequent posts once I start refining a bit more. I’m having trouble with permissions in Google Spreadsheets. Even with the data shared with everyone to read and the sheets published, I’m still getting a “user not signed in” error. Any ideas?
//TODO: Move the data into Processing. ManyEyes and Google Vis don’t seem to have good hyperlink capabilities – so no easy way to connect individual object records with elements in the visualization. Look for a simile timeline + map mashup. Maybe move to Prefuse? Flare?
