Visualising the Psalms

The April 2021 ABIDE series at St Columba’s Free Church, Edinburgh, coincided with the #30ChartChallenge, so I decided to plot where each of the Psalms in the series were cross-referenced in the Gospels for the “connections” prompt. Turns out, they make a lot of appearances!

Clicking on a dot (node) will highlight all the connected dots and make the plot zoom in, so you see the labels more clearly. Clicking anywhere else will reset to the original zoom. You can drag the plot by clicking somewhere that isn’t a dot or a line, to help you see things that might have ended up off the edge of the plotting area. And, just for fun, it wobbles if you grab a dot and move it around.

The next step is to turn this into a cross-referencing Shiny App. Watch this space, but in the meantime, happy exploring!
