Applying Sentiment Analysis to the Bible « OpenBible.info Blog

October 19th, 2011

What happens when you look at the language in the Bible, try to determine who’s happy and who’s not, then graph it all out?

OpenBible.info has done just that and posted a nice, circular graphic showing the ebbs and flows of positive and negative vibes in the Bible. It’s a pretty vanilla linguistic analysis, and the circle is just for aesthetics (see the author’s comment to the post), but it’s still interesting. Accurate?

OT/NT Refs: Development log, entry #5

July 8th, 2011

otnt-rev8Completed

  • Added layers (Quotations, Allusions, and Possible Allusions are all on separate layers, independently controllable (see below), as are the book arcs);
  • Added panning (click-and-drag to move);
  • Added keyboard event handler (to toggle visibility of layers (“q”/”a”/”p” for 3 link layers, “b” for book arcs, “c” to recenter view*, and “r” to reset view to initial state*);
  • Added zoom (“+” and “-” to zoom in and out, respectively)

ToDo

In priority order:

  • Add book labels
  • Fix intermediate point calculation
  • Post code to Github
  • Add basic interactivity [zooming & panning]
  • Add advanced interactivity [to show links for a specific book (a la http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2007/12/15/us/politics/DEBATE.html)]
  • Add columns for each chapter (why?)
  • Add mouse scroll wheel zoom handler
  • Add the allusion links and possible [allusion] links
  • Set up correct Z-order (handled by order of function calls)
