Data Visualisation

MDMArchive Research Lab

Digging Deeper

In the following network visualisations, you can explore the connections between users and content in the archive. The networks, divided into five user groups ranging in order from archive mega users (User Group 1) to more sporadic users (User Group 5), provide insight into the different levels of participation in the archive and the popularity of MDMArchive tags. These visualisations represent data collected up through 2020.

To explore the networks, use the + and - buttons in the upper right corner to zoom in and out. Click on a bubble (also called a node) to see all of its connections (also called edges). If you click on a user (colour-coded as pink) you can see all of the tags that user has applied to artefacts in the edges list on the left-hand side of the screen. If you click on a tag (reference key at bottom of network for colour-coding) you can see in the edges list how many users have applied that specific tag to an artefact. Have fun clicking around and examining how users connect to tags and to other users as well!
