This beautiful interactive data image is called a Hierarchical Edge Bundling chart, and shows influences within a small collection of missionary and Christian biographies. If a person’s name occurs in a biography, he/she is considered an influence on the subject of that biography. The books are divided into three groups, Missionary Biography, Evangelist Biography, and General Biography.
Hover over a name to reveal the people that person has been influenced by and the others that person has affected.
Click on the name to show a clickable list of these influences.
