What is HuViz?

Humanities Visualizer (HuViz) is a browser-based tool for visualing linked data.

HuViz allows researchers to explore RDF datasets and ontologies in the form of an interactive graph. The user can discover connections between entities -- such as: people, places and organizations -- either by clicking and dragging nodes directly into the Graph or by executing commands in the Commands Tab.

The test datasets for the HuViz prototype are generated from the Orlando Project textbase. However, the tool is theoretically compatible with any RDF-styled data. In the future, we anticipiate expanding the capabilities of HuViz to allow researchers to process and refine their own datasets and author links from within the tool itself.
