Co-keywords graph from TV3 news in 2013

Last evening, I attend, with my collegues David Laniado and Ariadna M. Fernández, the Urbanbeers @_BIG BANG DATA (II edition) hosted by the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona. When we arrived, I discovered that one of my latest graph visualizations was added to the BIG BANG DATA exhibition:

Co-keywords graph from a set of 20 786 news published by TV3 (2013). We removed the nodes whose degree was equal or less than 1 and the following parameters were set for each node:

  • Size → PageRank
  • Color → Cluster assigned by the the Louvain clustering method
  • Location → Position set by the OpenOrd layout algorithm


The graph was implemented during the hackaton runned by Civio focused on their platform Quien Manda: a map of political and economic power in Spain, presented as an interactive, graphical and documented repository of all ties between the most influential people in the country. From this hackaton, we devised new ideas and projects that, hopefully, will be announced soon.
