VIVO 1.8.1—Improved Performance and New Visualizations

Full release notes are available on the VIVO wiki:

Performance improvements

Users should see up to 75% reduction in time to display profiles compared to VIVO 1.8, and a 30% reduction compared to VIVO 1.7. These findings have been observed on both small data sets (200 people, 3,500 articles), and large data sets (4,500 people, 40,000 articles). Most profiles - even large/complex profiles - display within approximately two seconds.


New Javascript based versions of Co-Author and Co-Investigator are networks available. These new visualizations do not require Flash and display on mobile devices such as phones and tablets.

New AltMetric badges are enabled on publications by default, providing direct link to AltMetric information regarding the publication.

All visualizations have significant performance improvements. Maps of Science, Temporal Graphs and Co-author and Co-Investigator networks now all complete in just a few seconds. The very largest Maps of Science may require up to two minutes to complete.
