Document cloud comparison

Screenshot for 'Document cloud comparison'
The two clouds show the words related to the focus word in both documents in the same manner as for the single Word Association Cloud. The only difference is that colour is used to indicate words that are unique to one document or another. The words in blue on the left are unique to the 2007 SOTU and those in red on the right are unique to the 2008 SOTU. As before, you can click on a word to bring it in focus or click on the top edit box to change it. The clouds are linked in this case so that they always show the same word for both documents.

Double document shared word diagrams

Qualitative data presentation - standard

Screenshot for 'Qualitative data presentation - standard'
In the majority of cases qualitative data is presented like this. It is the text in its raw form although the quotes will be organised by theme, which is an important part of the analysis phase. It is also common to anonymise the quotes. In some cases, it is best to present the data like this; it contains the richness of meaning.

Text visualisation tool

Screenshot for 'Text visualisation tool'
The top left set of connected circles represents a partial view of a graph showing inter-relationships between words. There is a central ring of the primary words of interest and a secondary outer ring of some other words related to the central set. Click on an inner word to remove it from the central ring. Click on an outer word to add it to the central ring. In either case the words on the secondary ring are dynamically adjusted to show the 'most important words' related to the central set. The strength of the connections between the inner words and all the others are shown with simple lines. You can also hold down the number '1' key while clicking to make that word the only central word. <br /><br />The top right shows a collection of bar graphs giving the distribution of the primary words across the entire document. Underneath it is a small map showing the distribution of the words across the entire document. The bottom right gives a list of other interesting words that aren't already in the circle diagram - high frequency but modified so that capitalised words are boosted. These words can be clicked on to add them to the central diagram. The bottom left gives excerpts for the word last hovered over. There are 5 or 6 files you can explore by clicking on the upper left '?' icon.

Transcript analyzer

Screenshot for 'Transcript analyzer'
This is an interactive tool to visualize debate transcripts.<br />Click on the 'Load another transcript' button to choose a different transcript. The top section shows the distribution of some selected words within the text across a 'timeline' which goes from left to right. Each speech segment is the same width and the height of the small white bars show the number of occurrences of that word for that segment. You can add new words with the text box in the top right corner. You can remove existing words by clicking on them.<br /><br />Right below the word distribution graphs is a similar coloured set showing a spectral decomposition of the text based on who spoke and how much was said. In this case the bar heights give the amount of text for each segment. Click and drag the mouse left to right to move along the timeline and show the actual text for 3 consecutive segments.
