A Visual Inventory of Wikipedia

$ 35.00

What does a map of Wikipedia look like? Since we couldn’t fit 5½ million articles on a poster, we used topic modeling algorithms to organize everything into categories and subcategories. For each subcategory, we hand-selected a representative article to illustrate and included a short synopsis. The resulting collection shows the relative proportion of the topics and is a mixture of the peculiar and the mundane reflecting the experience of going to Wikipedia for one piece of information and being drawn down other paths to follow useful connections or entertaining distractions.
