Tool Change Log

New Features

  • Adds support for the new Web of Science format from ISI. This will allow the user to load both old and new ISI data downloaded from the ISI site.
  • Adds support for network overlays on the Geographical map. This will allow Sci2 users to generate a geographical network through Sci2, Gephi and Adobe Photoshop. See tutorial here
  • Adds support for Prefuse's visualizations on Mac's OS X. This will allow Mac's OS X users to be able to access all the visualization algorithms in Sci2, including Tree Map, Tree View, Radial Graph, etc.

Improvements

  • Triples the speed and reduces memory usage by 70% for the Extract Top N Nodes and Extract Top N Edges algorithms. This will allow Sci2 to support rendering for bigger networks.
  • Unified merging algorithms used by database

Bug fixes

  • Fixed legend boundary issue for geographical maps
  • Fixed a typo on the output data label
  • Fixed slice by year bug for databases
Labels
  • None
