Abstract: Interactive visualization systems are powerful tools in the task of exploring and understanding data. We describe two implementations of this approach, where a multidimensional network of news clips is depicted by taking advantage of its community structure. The first implementation is a multiresolution map of news clips that uses topic detection both at the clip level and at the community level, in order to assign labels to the nodes in each resolution. The second implementation is a traditional force-directed network visualization with several additional interactive aspects that provide a rich user experience for knowledge discovery. We describe a common use case for the visualization systems as a journalistic research and knowledge discovery tool. Both systems illustrate the links between news clips, induced by the co-occurrence of named entities, as well as several metadata fields based on the information contained within each node.
