The SGI Wikipedia Project
Kalev Leetaru turned to Wikipedia and together with SGI has created the first-ever historical mapping and exploration of the full text contents of the English-language edition of Wikipedia, in time and space, with visualizations of modern history captured in under a day.
See the positive or negative sentiments unfold through Wikipedia through space and time. Each location is plotted against the date referenced and cross referenced when mentioned with other locations. The sentiment of the reference is expressed from red to green to reflect negative to positive. All done using an SGI UV Shared Memory System.
