This is a phase 2 of the Harvard Dataverse home page effort #5053 and #5445. The goal is to have a visualization for the home page.

See the design document that outlines the background, goals, and ideas for this effort.

Rather than focus on visualizing data by subject, we could visualize the structure of dataverses, datasets, and files deposited to Harvard Dataverse, and use that as a way to communicate and explore the concept of containers of data at a high level.

We can show snapshots of the structure of containers at certain times (such as day/week/month – TBD), as well as limit what is shown to items with certain activity (downloads/views). These limitations would help viewers make comparisons as well as help us manage the volume of data points.

we could visualize the structure of dataverses

I'd feel remiss if I didn't mention that miniverse has a number of experiments for visualizing the structure of dataverses. For example, you could click around https://services.dataverse.harvard.edu/miniverse/metrics/dv-tree and here's a screenshot:

The code is here: https://github.com/IQSS/miniverse/tree/master/dv_apps/metrics/templates/metrics/viz-tree

There's another miniverse visualization (dv-tree2) that attempts to put dataverse in a tree which sounds great and works for Zelig models...

... but Harvard Dataverse has so many direct children of the "root" dataverse that it's a challenge to visualize in this way:

We want to include a simple word change as part of this – from "All" to "Total":
