Preparatory analysis

  • Performed a 'zoomed out' cross analysis of guidelines registered by Summer 2008, following the I/S/A structure (as described on the 'About us' page).
  • Produced a coarse-grained visual guide to the various scopes of those projects, and how they overlap.
  • An Excel file containing the results of the analysis is available for download.
