Project Description:
The Atlas of Science project proposes the creation of an information system whose major aims is to achieve a graphic representation of the Hiberoamerican Science Research. Such representation is conceived as a collection of maps - hence its name - which pursues three major objectives: (1) To provide the Spanish Research Community with a tool for the analysis of the structure formed by the diverse scientific domains and its corresponding research fronts. (2) To generate a graphical interface allowing navigation functions throughout the semantic spaces formed by the maps. (3) To represent, through these dynamic maps, the evolution of the research in particular knowledge and institution domains. This will improve the ability of the scientific community to analyze trends in the development of future research directions.

On the Atlas of Science website (http://www.atlasofscience.net) there are currently 10 countries being mapped, respectively Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Peru, Portugal, Spain and Venezuela. The map shown here represents Argentina's Atlas of Science, between 1990-2004, with its various thematic areas and links between them.
