Although Prospect is already arguably the best choice for creating, curating, visualizing and presenting digital collections for Digital Humanities projects, we’re thrilled to announce the latest new and improved version: 1.4. Here the lowdown on some of the improvements and new features.

Network Graphs

The Network Graph visualization offers another means of representing relationships between the Records in your data. It is designed to:

  • represent complex network graphs of relationships;
  • group Records together based on their relationships (so that Records of different Templates can be next to each other);
  • allow dots representing Records to be colored by the Legend;
  • allow dots representing Records to be sized according to a numeric Attribute (optional);
  • allow for a different color for each kind of relationship.

Here’s an example from a sample project (the Exploring Celtic Civilizations data visualization).

Bucket Matrix

The Network Graph visualization offers another means of representing relationships between the Records in your data. It is designed to:

  • sort Records into “buckets” according to the value of a specific Attribute (on a Template-by-Template basis);
  • create a visually compact representation (pack in as many Records as possible into the available space);
  • represent the relationships between the Records situated in buckets so as to highlight cross-category connections;
  • allow for a different color for each kind of relationship.

Here’s an example from a sample project (the Exploring Celtic Civilizations data visualization).
