Data analysis tools often run on different devices, and the same application may provide different functionality in each version. For instance, mobile versions of a tool tend to offer limited functionality tailored to the use "on the road".
In the IKON project, the HCC.lab develops a visualization prototype that displays knowledge generation from research projects at Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. Two versions of the visual prototype are being developed:
People are supposed to be able to automatically document and share insights gained in the desktop version. The application and visualisation already exists (d3/react/redux); however, sharing (1) between the two prototype versions or (2) with specific capabilities (such as adding notes, addressing particular people, sharing a subset of the view) is not yet enabled.
