I’m analyzing US presidential inaugural addresses, and I used the period slicer to break the speeches into the following 12 periods:
In the network mapping function I selected “custom periods” (under “Dynamics”), and then entered “12” for the number of periods. However, the script returned 5 periods, and they do not appear to correspond to the 12 periods I identified using “period slicer.” The documentation for “Dynamical Settings” doesn’t discuss the “custom periods” function.
- “Custom periods“
- Recall the exact number of time slices you have built
- Choose “Regular“.
Note that if some periods are empty they won’t appear. It can be the case if a period do not have any document, or if none of the document of a period is selected due to the chosen parameters to build the network (as with top nodes or filters on proximity measure…)!
I hope it helps !!
Thank you. I will try again
