PLoS Visualization Project

Kevin Boyack is President of SciTech Strategies, a small company that specializes in analysis and visualization of literature databases.

In this 2014 Data Harmony User Group meeting (DHUG) session, Kevin shows how a comprehensive map of the scientific literature is used to visualize the Public Library of Science (PLoS) thesaurus. The resulting map becomes a new visual template that can be used to examine thesaurus structure, content, and level of detail as well as show coverage and trends for various entities such as journals, institutions, even individual authors.
