Apart from the visualization of idea transmission in movie history, culturegraphy also visualized a second dataset of idea transmission. The data came from Wikipedia and looks at the transmission between famous individuals.

The people range from philosophers, writers, actors to comedians. Every person on the Wikipedia with a ‘influenced by’ information that has a birth date after 1800 is included in the dataset. The final dataset included 2297 people with 4670 connections. While the number of nodes are only 700 less than in the data from IMDB the number of links is less than half in comparison to the IMDB data.
