Here is a lovely and dynamic visualization of a Jazz network. Place your cursor anywhere and begin playing around (zoom in/out, drag, click). Maybe “Pops” should be designated the equivalent of an Erdős number.
Linked Jazz’s new visualization tool developed by Matt Miller visualizes the social connections between jazz musicians. Various modes allow the user to view the network in new ways. Fixed mode pins the individuals with the most connections to the outer perimeter. Free mode groups individuals together based on the number of connections they have. Similar mode arranges individuals based on their number of shared connections. Dynamic mode allows users to add individuals themselves and see their shared connections.
