Mapping Affinities: Democratizing Data Visualizations


The book “Mapping Affinities: Democratizing Data Visualization” has been published by Metis Presses in June 2021.

It introduces an innovative visual model to map scientific communities through data, paying great attention to the delicate balance between individuals and the whole collective.

The Swiss National Science Foundation supported the digital edition, which is freely downloadable in English, while the French one is available in bookstores.

Both English and French paper editions are also available for purchase thanks to the support of two EPFL faculties, the School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC) and the College of Humanities (CDH).

A good summary of the content is provided by the marvellous reviews of Mary Aviles for Nightingale, and Eric Briys for OpenEdition.
