Visual Analysis of Weblog Content

David McColgin, Nick Cramer, Michelle L. Gregory, Deborah Payne and Douglas Love

In this demo we present an analytic tool that provides a comprehensive approach to weblog analysis. We have combined ingest tools that have been designed to work with the special characteristics of blog data with a mature visual analytic tool designed for in-depth document analysis. Using a subset of the Buzz Metrics data, we demonstrate how this combination of tools provides users with the capability to analyze blogs in multiple languages, investigate changes over time, and investigate the affect of blogs.
