Abstract

Sotschi ist der Austragungsort der Olympischen Winterspiele 2014. Der subtropisch gelegene Ort war zu sowjetischen Zeiten als Sommerhauptstadt berühmt. Für den Umbau zu einem Zentrum des Wintersports hat die russische Regierung ein gigantisches Investitionsprogramm in die Wege geleitet. Die Folgen der Gigantomanie sind fatal: Umweltschäden sowie eine für die Alltagsbedürfnisse der Bevölkerung überdimensionierte Infrastruktur.
Sochi will host the 2014 Winter Olympics. With its subtropical climate, the city was renowned during the Soviet era as the summer capital. For its conversion to a centre for winter sports, the Russian government has set in motion a gigantic program of investment. With dire consequences: the gigantomaniac project will result in enormous environment damage and infrastructure quite out of proportion to the everyday needs of the local population.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
