This seems pretty cool

Our brothers at Chem.SE have something of the sort https://chemistry.meta.stackexchange.com/q/192/57

  • $\begingroup$ I'm sorry if I seem a bit dense, but are you asking if Bio.SE can do something similar? I guess I wasn't able to follow what question you're asking here. If so, that would be a pretty cool thing do see! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Well the code is posted here and it doesn't look too difficult to do, I'll give it a go on Friday if no one beats me to it! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @RoryM Just in case, if the recipe was not clear, just let me know. I will try to polish it. $\endgroup$ Dec 18 '12 at 11:15

So, here it is for Biology.SE:

enter image description here

Some more description e.g. on a respective post on meta.math.SE. In particular, colours stand for graph communities (groups of nodes which have a lot of connections between each other).

The project is on GitHub: https://github.com/stared/tag-graph-map-of-stackexchange/wiki (feel invited to tweak the plot to your taste).

I hope you like it! :)

EDIT

A newer, interactive and always up-to-date version is here: TagOverflow.

Code and a more detailed description is on GitHub.

  • $\begingroup$ @dd3 I fixed it. No idea why it got changed (perhaps a problem with the picture server). $\endgroup$ Jun 28 '13 at 14:49

    $\begingroup$ Here is a 2017 update I created using tagOverflow. Just to capture how things have changed... $\endgroup$ Jan 4 '17 at 20:39

For fun, here's the updated January 5, 2017 Update:

Tag Map-Biology-SE - 2017

I tried to arrange the dots in a way that mirrored Piotr's 2015 update.

Unsurprisingly, there is minimal change.

Here is manually-done one. Each color indicate a highly related field of study.
