  <dc:description>Star Wars social network

This dataset contains the social network of Star Wars characters extracted from movie scripts. In short, two characters are connected if they speak together within the same scene. The data contain characters and links from episodes I to VII.

How the data were created is described in my blog posts:


	The Star Wars social network
	Star Wars social network: Force Awakens


The associated code is available in the main Github repository evelinag/StarWars-social-network.

Contents of the files are the following:


	
	starwars-episode-N-interactions.json contains the social network extracted from Episode N, where the links between characters are defined by the times the characters speak within the same scene.
	
	
	starwars-episode-N-mentions.json contains the social network extracted from Episode N, where the links between characters are defined by the times the characters are mentioned within the same scene.
	
	
	starwars-episode-N-interactions-allCharacters.json is the interactions network with R2-D2 and Chewbacca added in using data from mentions network.
	
	
	starwars-full-... contain the corresponding social networks for the whole set of 6 episodes.
	


Description of networks

The json files representing the networks contain the following information:

Nodes

The nodes contain the following fields:


	name: Name of the character
	value: Number of scenes the character appeared in
	colour: Colour in the visualization


Links

Links represent connections between characters. The link information corresponds to:


	source: zero-based index of the character that is one end of the link, the order of nodes is the order in which they are listed in the “nodes” element
	target: zero-based index of the character that is the the other end of the link.
	value: Number of scenes where the “source character” and “target character” of the link appeared together. Please not that the network is undirected. Which character represents the source and the target is arbitrary, they correspond only to two ends of the link.
