Hello, and welcome!
Tailoredpath proposes a new way to visualize data, in a map-like way.
New ! You can now compare jobs with the transition tool.
The singular format of a map allows the non-linear reading of data, thus encouraging its serendipitous exploration.
This particular map uses occupational data and dimensionality reduction to represent jobs based on their similarities. It allows users to explore the adjacent possible in their work lives. It can be of interest to people who want to make a career move.
The adjacent possible is a kind of shadow future, hovering on the edges of the present state of things, a map of all the ways in which the present can reinvent itself.
- Steven Johnson, author & media theorist
Each marker's position is computed using the skills & knowledge necessary to perform the job as dimensions, and then projected on the map using a dimensionality reduction algorithm. Thereby, occupations are positioned on the map depending on the level of similarity they share with one another in terms of skills and knowledge.
The map-like format was created thanks to LeafletJS (open source JavaScrit library for maps).
This map aggregates various databases, including those of the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Occupational Information Network, Eurostat and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
I'm looking for feedback - there certainly are a million ways I could improve Tailoredpath.
