Distinctive themes in grant funding in 2005-2017
This visualisation answers the question "Who has funded what themes throughout the years?"
Visualisations often rely on pre-defined categories. Instead, this visualisation uses machine learning to find themes in the language funders use to describe their grants.
This visualisation displays distinctive phrases for every year. Distinctive phrases are the ones that are frequent in a particular year but not frequent across the entire dataset.
The most distinctive phrases are displayed with darker text. The larger a word is the more money was available for grants associated with the theme. The funders that are most prevalent in the data, the Wellcome Trust and Big Lottery Fund, are distinguished by colour.
