Scalar 2 User's Guide


Lenses allow you to search and visualize the content of a Scalar project. A lens can map all pages that are geo-tagged to within 100 miles of Tokyo, diagram all of the media items tagged  “post-structuralism”, or draw a word cloud of the contents of every page the reader visited in the last week. Lenses exist as standalone items in a book, and can be embedded in a page using the Lens widget.

Lenses can be created by Authors as analytical tools included with their projects. They begin as private resources which can later be made public. Readers can create their own lenses too (up to five total), as long as they are logged in — these will remain private, but a reader can submit a lens to authors  to be considered for publication.
