Reddit user 'sharkbait784' has created an interactive data map for the entirety of Reddit's website. The comprehensive graphic looks like it's a photo of a universe that could have been captured by NASA.
In addition to its resemblance to its something from outer space, the graph also is an interesting way to chart the links between conversations and visualize the community's collective brains. The graph was compiled from "data collected from public Reddit posts since 2008."
Users can explore the map by scrolling over it to bring each and every Reddit category and subcategory into view. Very broad and popular topics like 'Science' and 'TrueRedditDrama' are made easy to identify; the hotter the color, the hotter the topic.
