Mapping the research literature

Paperscape visualizes all the arXiv papers. The arXiv is a pioneer in Open Data publishing from 1991 and started by Paul Ginsparg for high energy physicists (hep). It soon extended to most physicists.

According to it's importance (citation) each paper has a certain radius and the citations also link the papers to their position in the map. In addition there are helpful overall topics and one can click once zoomed in on each paper to know all the authors and the title. The colors correspond to each arXiv section.
