Humanities + Design team, Stanford University
Initially designed for the specific context of historical research (see the Mapping the Republic of Letters project), Palladio allows to curate and explore one or several tabular datasets (.csv, .tsv files), in order to visualize spatiotemporal and topological patterns.
On the curating side, the tool allows to join related tables (for instance, establish a correspondance between a "people" table containing a "birthplace" column and a "places" table containing geographical coordinates) and to improve data (type verification, delimiters handling, etc.).
On the exploration side, Palladio allows to visualize data as spatio-temporal linked visualizations, node-link networks or galleries.
