the origins of the visone project lie in a single link between the Algorithms & Data Structures Group in the Department of Computer & Information Science, and the Domestic Politics & Public Administration Group in the Department of Politics & Management, both at the University of Konstanz.
The project has since evolved into a network of collaborations, with members in several different universities.
we gratefully acknowledge that the visone project is supported by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) under grant BR 2158/1-1. Initial funding was provided by Ausschuss für Forschungsfragen (AFF), Universität Konstanz.
