WikiRank

This is an investigation into performing PageRank on Wikipedia articles in order to quantify influence of different items (e.g. movies or universities). It is a bit of a mess, but you can roughly follow the code from

  • ranklib/extractgraph.go: Extracts links from a Wikipedia dump
  • ranklib/ranker.go: Wrapper for calculating PageRank
  • ranklib/pagerank.go: Performs PageRank via a power iteration method and outputs a rank vector for all pages
  • wikirank.go: Main executable / wrapper for the pipeline

A more detailed description and example output is available on my blog: http://blog.argteam.com/coding/university-ranking-wikipedia/
