Alma Connect

 

Alma Connect

 

Alma Connect is an interactive data visualisation that shows the how familiar the student is to his or her alumni. This visualisation is based on familiarity graph which uses several factors to determine the extent of common ground a student has with the alumni.

LAUNCH THE INTERACTIVE VISUALIZATION

In this visualisation, student is the red circle at the centre. Every other circle represents a person, and the size of the circle denotes for how long they have been an active alumni. The circles in the very similar region match the student's preferences best and are the potential alumni that could be highly familiar. Traversing outwards reduces the familiarity. Filters can be applied narrow down the exploration further.

 

How the almaConnection graph works ?

 Alma Connect is a point based visualisation that is driven by familiarity index. This index is calculated by matching the chosen attributes between student and the alumni. These attributes are various aspects that determine the commonality. For every attribute that matches, points are added to the familiarity index. The number of points gained depends on the how much weightage a particular attribute carries.
