Globalization of Science! Inspired by the friendship map of Facebook, this visually gorgeous map documents collaborations between scientists from bibliographic information in databases. Each paper published with authors from different cities is one line with geographical coordinates mapped onto a Mercator projection. Definitely check out zoomable link below!
(Reflecting on our own work, we’ve published with colleagues in Australia, Israel, Czech Republic and Japan in the past five years).
