Crunchbase visualization tool of Venture Firms2011-02-22 14:33:42 +0000
The application crawls pages from Crunchbase to retrieve a set of financial organizations, then update their locations using their API. Details on each organization are fetched through an AJAX request to Crunchbase's API after a marker on the map is clicked. A vector graph is displayed showing the list of the investments of the firm.
The application uses Raphael JS for creating the SVG graph, therefore works on Firefox and Safari only [EDIT: it was then updated to google chart api to maximize browser compatibility and now fully compliant].
