TRACKING ONLINE NEWS TO DISCOVER TRENDS AS STORIES UNFOLD

Trendviz helps you manage the massive influx of news articles. Powered by intelligent algorithms, it continuously tracks the online news. As a result, patterns emerge in real-time, enabling you to take action and respond to the latest developments.

Project background

Big Data offers a lot of opportunities for your business. To highlight the power of Big Data technology, we created a new aggregation tool that intelligently filters information for the end user. TrendViz provides a bird’s eye view of the important trending topics in online news defined by your keywords. These can be any term concerning your brand, organization, market or any other topic of interest. At the same time, TrendViz allows you to dig deeper into the data using a visualization-based data discovery tool.

Design

The design strikes a balance between typography, legibility, and the dynamic shapes of relationships between data in a ‘form follows function’ approach to highlight the results and insights.

The application begins by showing a collection of custom keywords and how they have trended over time. The user can then drill down for a more detailed view depending on their interests or the topic they are investigating.

The form and shape of the visualizations is driven by the content and core principles of the algorithms behind TrendViz. Consistent visualizations reduce the complex multidimensional networks into comprehensible images.

Sentiment analysis

We partnered with AI Applied to perform sentiment analysis on the collected content. All content elements are contextually rated in the scope of the current topic, so they are completely specific to the topic at hand.

D3.js

To generate visually pleasing graphs we used the D3 javascript library. The most notable about this project is that every graphs within Trendviz can transition into any of the other graphs.
