Pharyngula

Graphing Pharyngula

Here’s a applet that traverses the html of a web page and turns it into a pretty graph. There is an online explanation and examples, too—and here’s Pharyngula.

The dots are color coded specific classes of html tags. That red flower at the top, for instance, is a table—the Friday Random Ten turned into a kind of carnation.

    For some strange reason UTI is a lot bigger, but I don’t know how to post its graph. Your graph’s a lot more interesting, though – UTI has nothing like the red carnation.

    “… a kind of carnation”!? That’s a Lily of the Nile if I ever saw one.

    Looks like an unrooted haplotype network to me. Like that for cichlids from Verheyen, et al (2003).

    Hah. You should see any MySpace user page. There’s so much red it’s painful.

    It took about 5-10 minutes for mine to “settle down”. I got a few red carnations out of it too!

    Nice plant! Interestingly, are there online tools creating sites structure?

    Can I actually get the TITLES (or FILENAMES) of the pages as a tooltip “on mouse over”?
