On this page I publish tutorial videos about the virtual research environment (VRE) nodegoat. The videos are intended for the users of nodegoat Go, which is available for students and research at the University of Bern, but are also valid for other nodegoat installations.
1. Getting started: create your first project in ‘Management’ / add Types in ‘Model’ / activate the Types in ‘Management’ / work with the Types in ‘Data’
See further information about ‘Types’: https://nodegoat.net/guides/type
2. Your first visualization: Locations must be stored in the Sub-Object of a Type
See further information about Locations: https://nodegoat.net/guides/ (Working with Spatial Data)
3. Entering dates: Dates must be stored in the Sub-Object of a Type
See further information about dates: https://nodegoat.net/guides (Working with temporal Data)
4. Entering vague dates: Vague dates must be stored in Chronology
See further information about vague dates: https://nodegoat.net/guides (Working with temporal Data)
5. Importing Locations with CSV data: Geo coordinates must be stored in Sub-Objects
Sample CSV data: Locations (40k) with geonames.org-IDs and Geo Coordinates:
Hint: In nodegoat are already about 130k locations from geonames.org preinstalled (Type: City). These locations can be used and extended by all users as a collaborative work.
See further information about importing data: https://nodegoat.net/guides (Import Data)
6. Create your first relation: Relations are created in the Model to be used in Data
See further information about relations: https://nodegoat.net/guides (Add a Related Type)
7. Create your first Classification: Classifications are created in the Model to be used in Data.
See further information about Classifications: https://nodegoat.net/guides (Add a Classification)
8. Expand your Data Model: Person with ‘Event Birth’.
There are many ways in nodegoat to model your data. See a different Data Model: https://nodegoat.net/guides (Create your first Type, Correspondence Networks)
