This web application is a prototype.
It may contain data errors and/or bugs.
It is under test in order to improve it.
It shows possibilities to request and visualize spatio-temporal data
Suggestions and ideas are welcome (to Steamer or Hisoma team).
- You have to enter the minimum and maximum temporal limits (integers and a minimum limit lower than or equal to 1300) using the text boxes.
- You have to chose the type of data: Authors and/or Works (with or without the 2D circles for the 3D map) using the checkboxes
- Click on to run the query and get 3D and 2D visualisations
- Click on to erase data on 3D map
- Click on to reset parameters
- Click on to reset all filters of dynamic 2D elements (2D map and charts)
- You can change the view (2D/Globe), search a specific place (must be actual name), ...
- The authors's paths will appear as polylines (color/author):
---> We use altitude as time (10.000 meters by century).
---> There is 3 nodes (birth place, activity place, death place: activity has been calculated as the difference between date of death and date of birth).
---> If a line goes to the ground, it means that the time is undetermined.
---> If a line goes in the middle of the see (the "Uncertain" place), it means that the spatial dimension is undetermined/uncertain
- Works will appear as sum of works/century/place under the form of cylinders. If a cylinder is red and high in the sky (21th century), that means temporal dimension is uncertain. If it is in the middle of the see (the "Uncertain" place), it means that the spatial dimension is undetermined/uncertain
- You can click on line and/or cylinder to activate a widget and get more details about the authors and/or works
- The data are not erased when you enter another period in order to make comparison possible in the 3D map (the data of 2D map and widgets will be updated and based on the new query).
DYNAMIC 2D CHARTS AND MAP
- Map, temporal bar charts (by century and by year), pie charts (by authors, by theme, by type, by location), scatterplot chart and datatables are dynamically linked. It means you can select parts of pie charts and use filters of bar charts to make selections and all elements will be dynamically updated. Selections don't query the database (data is put in crossfilter.js library dimensions that are used by dc.js library)
- Map will shows proportionnal circles of works by century/place
- Scatterplot shows distribution of works by century/number of words
- Pie charts shows distribution of works by authors, theme, type and location
- Datatable shows details on selected works (results of charts queries). You can click on latin or french name of author to go on their wikipedia page. It is also possible with date and place. The "Go to place (2D map)" allows to go and zoom to the place on the 2D map
- You can use the button to reset all filters and make new selections
