Quantifying Memory: Plugging hierarchical data from R into d3

Quantifying Memory: Plugging hierarchical data from R into d3 | BI - Business Intelligence & Visualization | Scoop.it
the topics are ordered using a hierarchical clustering function, meaning highly correlated topics are grouped together. Then the strongest correlations between the clusters are drawn in the center. In this way we also see associations between thematically distant topics. In the case of the illustration above, there are apparently two main types of text about Stalin: firstly, Stalin features in debates about ideology, and politics, and secondly within texts about culture and lifestyle. Curiously there are few strong links across this divide, the clearest example of a bridge being the 'culture and civilisation' topic, which correlates both with debates about the Russian opposition, and with topics labelled as 'poetry' and 'books and reading'.
