Combining automated analysis and visual-interactive displays helps analysts rapidly sort through volumes of raw text to detect critical events and identify surrounding issues. The Web extra at is a video segment demonstrating the use of the visual analytics time-density plots to analyze text data streams. The dataset used for this analysis is a collection of microblog messages that was provided as part of VAST Challenge 2011.
