The Map of Jazz Musicians: an online interactive tool for navigating jazz history's interpersonal network.

The development of an online tool to map connections and collaborations among American jazz musicians.

The Map of Jazz Musicians will be an interactive and freely accessible online tool designed to explore collaborations between players in jazz history. As the user scrolls through time, the flexible map-like layout will display distances between musicians according to their degree of association at any given time. The underlying database will contain thoroughly researched discographic and biographical data for thousands of jazz musicians. This use of interactive visualization will allow students and researchers to navigate the vast interpersonal network of musicians who comprise one of America's richest cultural traditions.
