PostcapitalMovies is a side-project of Postcapital that analyzes social tendencies and interactions in most of the European countries and the USA by visualizing their movie productions in the 1989-2001 period.
PostcapitalMovies (1989-2001) is a project of Roberto Therón and Rodrigo Santamaría.
It is based on MovieOverlapper, a project made by R. Therón, R. Santamaría, J. García, D. Gómez and V. Paz-Madrid of the VisUsal group in the University of Salamanca.
PostcapitalMovies makes use of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). Get the newest version at http://java.com
NOTE: PostcapitalMovies is designed to work with JRE 1.6, it won’t work with older JRE versions.
Please download the latest stable version, or test alpha versions:
First stable version, several bugs solved
First stable version
Alpha version Installation & Execution PostcapitalMovies should run correctly under any Windows or Unix OS with at least 1GB of RAM and 100MB of disk space. However, we cannot assure it will run under any platform.
To install just download the .tar.gz file, uncompress it and:
- Windows: double click on postcapitalMovies.bat, or type treevolution.bat in the command line.
- Linux: open a terminal and give execution privileges to PostcapitalMovies with “chmod +x postcapitalMovies.bat“. Run it with “./postcapitalMovies.bat“
- MacOS X: same as Linux. NOTE that MacOS X does not support JRE.16 for 32-bit computers, so PostcapitalMovies could not work under this configuration.
Note that PostcapitalMovies is configured for a screen size of 1440×900 and would not be properly visualized on smaller configurations.
