This 3D Visualization Reimagines Wikipedia As A Cosmic Web Of Knowledge
Wikiverse is a virtual world that allows readers to surf through information as they would the universe
Welcome to the Wikiverse, a 3D visualization of Wikipedia. In this galaxy, articles are represented by stars, and neighboring stars form clusters to signify their degrees of similarity. By clicking on a star you can read its entry and see what other pages directly link up to it via colored lines that stretch out across the rest of the universe.
If you’ve ever fallen down an endless Wiki-hole spanning from fiscal policy to dengue fever, you’ve witnessed but a small fraction of the free encyclopedia’s sheer magnitude. And though the Wikiverse covers only a maximum of 5% of Wikipedia’s topics in its totality, the platform still proves to be a useful tool for visualizing the connections between seemingly disparate subjects.
