So, I too tackled the VUE visual mapping system. I floundered for a while till I mastered the buttons at the top of the document for switching tools.
I began a project to map out Black Confederates on the web. The exercise allowed me to see common sources, themes, and techniques of these neo-Confederate sites masking themselves as some sort of tribute to the Black men in Grey. (Hilariously, I think all the sites I looked at were by white men) VUE let me see in one glance all the sites using certain common books as documentation as well. I think this would be handy as a visual shorthand to trace the common pathways of these revisionist web pages.
I tried to upload my map to this post, but it wouldn’t take it because of “security problems”. Great. Now I’ll be getting a visit from Homeland Security or something.
PS. We now have the visual map uploaded below:
