Spanish Intellectual Climate: Developing the Gnovis Prototype (Course or Curricular Material)
Title: Spanish Intellectual Climate: Developing the Gnovis Prototype
Author: Lucia Binotti
Author: Chris Smith
Abstract: “The Intellectual Climate of Spain” is a laboratory where students will be gathering and organizing materials to create a prototype version of a software tool, Gnovis, for visualizing entities and the relationships between them in well-defined domains of knowledge. We will generate our own highly detailed dataset for a limited subset of Spanish Renaissance literature. This detailed example will help us understand the types of interface necessary to allow navigation through the many attributes and connections between the entities under consideration. In addition, the seminar will serve as a crucible for testing our ideas about developing different modes of visualization, and about the usefulness of including or excluding certain attributes.
