ABSTRACT

This chapter describes various text visualization approaches that can easily be included in a project to enhance the data exploration process. For these visualizations, JavaScript-based libraries will be used such as D3.js, Charts.js and HiCharts. Although this visualization provides great insights into the data at a glance, the larger the data set becomes the more difficult the visualization process becomes. Considerations should be made to remove stop words before the visualization process is started as these can easily build up the bulk of the content. In this chapter, the authors outline the process of creating a time-series graph. This chapter outlined the visualizations that are possible when working with text. Word clouds were introduced as a quick method of viewing the most popular terms in a collection of text.
