I decided to continue with the topic of visualizations for my open post. I found an infographic that displays over 63,000 cross-references between different books of the Bible. Each book is represented by a vertical bar running across what would be the X-axis. Each arc is a cross-reference, going from one book to another. I think the idea is brilliant, and the visualization itself is easy to understand. The only problem is that I can’t interact with it… or at least I haven’t figured out how to. What good does this infographic do if I can’t actually take away and information form it? All I can see is, yeah, there’s a lot of cross-references.
