Cross-Reference Visualizations

The bar graph that runs along the bottom represents all of the chapters in the Bible. Books alternate in color between white and light gray. The length of each bar denotes the number of verses in the chapter. Each of the 63,779 cross references found in the Bible is depicted by a single arc - the color corresponds to the distance between the two chapters, creating a rainbow-like effect.

This is a pretty cool visualization of bible cross-references that was developed by Chris Harrison to show bible cross references throughout the length of the bible. I can’t help but think of how interesting this could be for genome visualization: the cross references could be based on genes that are transcription factors for other genes. (activate or deactivate those genes). Chris has lots of other fascinating visualization projects to look at, and is very stimulating to browse it.
