Index Browse the visualizations! Please use a recent Chrome or Safari. Firefox does display it correctly, but is missing the "jump" functionality. How is it made? The cables.csv contains a field for referencing related cables via MRN. Example: What is the structure of the network? Some of these clusters form a star which can be a indication for a type of "action request" that was sent to multiple embassies. The largest cluster (giant) contains ~100000 cables with ~143000 references. For every community, cluster or star a interactive visualization is generated. What are missing cables? From the total of 251287 cables ~56000 additional cables are referenced but not included in the cables.csv. For some of the missing cables it is possible to estimate the date of creation.
