One of the analyses done by the Danube-INCO.NET project is a bibliometric study that
was conducted by the ZSI. The objective of the study was primarily to capture and analyse
co-publications and co-patents among countries in the Danube Region to provide a solid base
for the identification of intra-regional thematic strengths and collaboration patterns.
The visualisation below represents an interactive map that shows the co-publication output
among the Danube Region Countries (2003-2013). The intensity of the colour used in the
heatmap (the coloured area between the two geographic maps) indicates the amount of
co-publications: the darker the colour the higher the number of co-publications.
The visualisation can be navigated with your computer mouse. Moving the mouse cursor over
elements may show interesting context information. E.g. pointing at a square in the heatmap
shows the current amount of co-publications fore a country pair in the given year,
the previous year, as well as the difference between the two.
Select a country by left-clicking it on the map. Left-click on other countries adds them to
the selection. Left-click a country again to de-select it.
To remove the entire selection, double-click the sea or click the "clear" button.
The geographic maps as well as the heatmap can be zoomed by using the mousewheel.
The maps can be dragged by holding down the left mouse button.
The "clear" button will reset the view.
