  • One of the basemaps of science – long journey – around the corner
    Working both in DH and in archive
    Career in terms of projects
    Still books
  • My favorite: mid 2000 Inf Vis meets scientometrics – all science together; widen the perspective
    More -> Atlas of Science
    From the beginning: visualizations as a way to support the understanding of the sciences but also to support evaluations – two meaning of mapping: associate (a group of elements or qualities) with an equivalent group – descriptive – but also represent (an area) on a map – draw/sketch/visualize
  • Its all in the data!
    It is also still a profession: tools available; but most of the really nice large scale visualizations (NARCIS poster) are static, and taylor made
    But, increasing use in impact studies/consultancy/daily evaluation
  • Evaluating institutions, getting insights in trends; apply to funding streams – ImpactEV project
  • What is in for me?
    Altmetrics, assessment for each step, PW
    Narcism and job market
  • Measuring, visualization – is this all?
    Need for orientation as interdisciplinary researcher
  • Possible users
    Expert moving into new research area
    Non-experts i.e. those who need to be guided or helped in understanding or topic and its interactions
    Scholars/students conducting literature research
    Scholars engaging with interdiscplinary and mutlidisciplinary research problems
    Funding officer in need of research field overview
    Funding bodies observing project result take-ups, cross-fertilization and dissemination
    Academic institutions in developing educational and research curricula
    Patent and standard bodies and investors exploring the implementation and application areas
    Tools for Scholars of History and Philosophy of Science and Bibliometrics
