Mapping the Math Universe

OpenMathMap is a Leaflet powered map of Mathematical Subject Classifications. Each country on the world map of math is a separate Mathematical Subject Classification.

Each country on the map is scaled by the number of publications on that subject classification. The closeness of the different Mathematical Subject Classifications on the map is determined by the ratio of papers that are published in both MSCs simultaneously, so that neighboring countries are those with a high number of papers published under both of them.

The map includes a search option to search the map by author, class and formula. The search option appears to be a work in progress as at the moment it doesn't seem to return any results.
