Reaction : Information visualization for text analysis

The chapter provides a brief introduction to several tools/ideas used for visualizing textual data. It is a good overview of all the visualizations we have seen and discussed in class. The chapter would've been a little hard to understand without the previous discussions. It has enough graphical representations to jog your memory about important concepts to be remembered about visualization techniques or tools. It was interesting to read about See Soft and how it was originally designed for software development. As usual Many Eyes was one of the very interesting topics to go over again.
