Citation density maps

Citation density maps

Citation density maps use text mining techniques to provide an intuitive, easy-to-understand overview of a selected set of scientific publications, such as the set of all publications in a particular journal or field during a given time period. Colors are used to indicate the citation impact of different areas of research. This for instance makes it possible to easily identify hot research topics in the scientific literature.
