VIMEO 188647919 Vision for collaborative editing in Open Knowledge Maps. We will develop a space for collective knowledge organisation and exploration, connecting researchers, students, librarians, journalists, practitioners and citizens.

# Example maps

- OpenAIRE2020 - openknowledgemaps.org - Educational Technology - openknowledgemaps.org

# Software

The ain software called Head Start,is a web-based knowledge mapping software intended to give researchers a head start on their literature review (hence the name).

- Code on github

It comes with a powerful backend that is is capable of automatically producing knowledge maps from a variety of data, including text, metadata and references- github

- Interactive, web-based knowledge maps based on D3.js, following Shneiderman's principle of "overview first, zoom and filter, then details-on-demand" - Synchronized list representation of documents complementing the knowledge map - Integrated PDF viewer and annotation tool, courtesy of Hypothes.is (software) - Powerful server component written in PHP and R for the creation of knowledge maps, including algorithms for clustering, ordination and labelling - Connectors to a number of academic search engines through rOpenSci, including BASE, PubMed, PLOS and DOAJ Persistence and versioning system based on SQLite

There are some frontends written in VueJs and React.
