D3 and the Encyclopedia of Life: A Force-directed Graph for Species Interaction

Many thanks to our speaker Jeff Holmes for preparing this presentation:

 

D3 is being used as the basis for a force-directed graph to represent species interactions in an online Ecosystem Explorer application for the Encyclopedia of Life. The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) is a global project that aims to aggregate information about all species known to science in one freely accessible website (eol.org). Content from EOL is retrieved dynamically by the Ecosystem Explorer tool which maps interactions between a collection of species within an ecosystem. This talk will provide an overview of the existing and planned features of the Ecosystem Explorer, a brief introduction to the Encyclopedia of Life as a data source for biodiversity applications, and a discussion of the design process, implementation, outstanding issues involving the use of D3.

    I wasn't able to attend last night's meetup. Is the ecosystem explorer online? I couldn't find at the above link. - Thanks

      Not sure how you get there from the site, but there's a Field Guides section that includes the Ecosystem Explorer: http://fieldguides.eo...­

      Yes, sorry Doug. We're in the midst of moving stuff around on the sites. Matt's reply is correct.
