Reaction:Jigsaw: Supporting Investigative Analysis through Interactive Visualization

In this paper the author puts light on how "Jigsaw" provides multiple views on document entities.Personally I found it interesting how Jigsaw helped in providing multiple views of the document.Moreover the flexibility that jigsaw model provides to incorporate other models into is useful too.It provides number of views like text,document,graph,scatter plot etc. Out of these I found the graph view rather interesting. It is close to one of the papers that we read which had the example of the site InfoViz in it. I feel this kind a connectivity between entities has a wide range range use especially in the form of the graph view.

On a whole the Jigsaw is a nice method to show connectivity between entities,however choosing the appropriate view is a serious challenge I feel.
