Tag Radio

Tag Radio is a music classification visualization that shows the relationships between genres. We used the Last.fm API to pull in the top 50 tags, and then created a python script to measure similarity between a tag and all others based on the number of shared tags. Finally, we used this data to build a visualization with d3.js that arranges these tags in space based on similarity (closer distance = more similar tags).

  1. Hi Kate,

    I came across your music tag visualization, tag-radio, which I find very cool.

    I’m building a music discovery tool called rolling muse. It’s based on matching people with similar musical taste, but I have been getting into tags lately. Check it out if you’re interested. We happen to be looking for UX/UI talent, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
