Got the new Scalar paths visualization up and running. This is the complete visualization from the project I showed a detail from yesterday (here’s the live version). Browsing through various Scalar projects, I’m finding this new vis is teaching me things about their internal structures that I hadn’t known before—pretty cool. If you have a Scalar book already, this replaces the old path vis (which was probably the least useful of all of them anyway).
Think I may be on to something with this new paths visualization I’ve been playing with for Scalar. Feels like the first vis that really gets at the author’s intent with regard to the structure of their book. Developed using d3. Shown here is a detail of a test visualization of Virginia Kuhn’s book “Filmic Texts and the Rise of the Fifth Estate.”
