Visualizing electronic records collections

During THATCamp Weijia Xu and I  will demo two in-progress interactive visualizations that show characteristics/contents/relationships/provenance/size/density of electronic records collections. We want to listen from the participants whether these representations allow them to “make sense” of the collections, to understand their structure and to identify parts and stories within. Also, if these representations are useful for describing a given collection and to plan for their preservation. We are interested in feed-back related to developing visual literacy  for abstract representations of collections and in finding useful visual metaphors to represent the myriad aspects of content, structure, and context of collections.

Hi Maria,
This sounds like some interesting work and I’ll be eager to see the abstractions you have identified and reified.
