This multi-touch installation reveals how Max Planck Institutes collaborate with each other, and with their international partners.
The network view shows the Max Planck Institutes and their connections. The size of the circles represents the number of scientific publications for each institute, and the width of the connecting lines the number of jointly published papers between two institutes.
The map of Max Planck institutes on the right shows you their respective locations, whereas the world map on the bottom shows the locations of external collaboration partners.
