This is the Journal Co-citation Analysis (JCA) visualization used in my thesis as a representation of the entire discipline I call Disaster Studies and Sciences (DSS). It has been labeled according to common (but not necessarily exclusive) thematic areas found across all of the visualizations.

This site is devoted to my projects, research, musings, questions, and observations in the world of Disaster and Emergency Management.  Much of the material here currently centers on my recently completed thesis research into the possible application of Co-citation Analysis and Knowledge Domain Visualization (KDViz).

Although detailing my thesis research and related matters occupies many of the pages, I will also post on work in progress, and will blog on a variety of EDM topics (sometimes presented with my particular sense of humor…) as my time and attention span allows.
