Palladio is a tool that enables you to analyze CSV data using different visualization formats. This page walks you through how to create a network visualization.
How to Use Palladio
- Download the CSV file you want to analyze. We will use the topic Anatomy in this example.
- Click on the "Open Palladio" link in the header box, above.
- Drag and drop the CSV file you downloaded in the text field and click "Load."
- The "topic" column in the CSV files contains several terms. You can tell Palladio to treat every term individually by clicking on "topic" and, in the dialog that opens, enter a comma in the "Multiple values" field.
- You can now visualize your data. To create a network, click on "Graph."
- Choose a "Source" by clicking on it. For example, "topic."
- Choose a "Target" by clicking on it. For example, "last_name." This will show you which authors identified by their last names worked on which topics.
- Check "size nodes" and "highlight" to make the visualization a bit more readable.
- You should now see a network visualization. What can you read from it?
Additional Tips and Tricks
- Use the Timeline facet to focus on a specific timeframe.
- Use the Facet filter to narrow down the visualization according to other dimensions.
