Visualization

Quickly toggle between visualization types and indicators represented by selecting from the drop-down lists above the visualization to find the combination that best works to display the information you need. Expand or reduce the number of items from the results table that are included in visualization by clicking the - or + buttons. Hover over any segment of the visualization to see its associated data. 

Seven primary visualization types are available for all filter combinations.

Type

Description

Geographic 

Data results are displayed as highlighted locations on a world map. 

Trend Graph

View trends in data over time based on the indicator selected.

5-Year Trend Graph

The 5-Year Trend Graph groups documents and citations accumulated in the same five-year period. Trend lines on multi-year graphs tend to appear more stable than those illustrated on single-year graphs.

Bar Graph

View data arranged as bars of different lengths.

Bubble Graph

Data from results are displayed as bubbles whose size is related to the value for the indicator selected. High values will display as larger bubbles. 

Treemap

Displays data as rectangles that are sized and arranged in order of quantitative value from largest in the top-right corner to smallest in the bottom-left corner. 

Pie Graph

Displays data in a circular chart divided by differing proportions based on the numeric value of the data included. 

Radar Graph

Radar graph plots your results in a two-dimensional chart, allowing you to see how multiple results compare along multiple indicators. Each indicator is represented by one of the outward pointing spokes, with lines drawn connecting data points. 

Scatterplot

Three-dimensional visualization that allows you to specify values for an x-axis, y-axis and points along both. The size of the point is adjusted based on the indicator you select. All indicators are available for each axis and the point size. Average values for each axis display as dashed lines. Possible uses for this visualization include benchmarking an individual's research against their peers, or to identify research strengths using any measures of output, impact and collaboration.

In addition, two collaboration specific visualizations are also available when 'collaborations with' filter has been selected:

Type

Description

Collaborations 

Displays the relationship between the focal entity and those entities with which collaborations have occurred on published documents. Available when the 'Collaborations with' filter has been selected.

Collaboration Network

Available in the People Master Tile, this visualization links authors by their co-authored documents.
