TagPies: Comparative Visualization of Textual Data

Abstract

A TagPie is a novel tag cloud layout that arranges the tags belonging to multiple data categories in a pie chart manner. Motivated from research in classical philology, TagPies were designed to support the comparative analysis of classical terminology. In this scenario, the data categories represent the co-occurrences of different searched keywords, so that the comparison of the contexts in which these keywords were used becomes possible using TagPies. This paper illustrates the iterative development of TagPies, which aid as a distant reading view on a text corpus for humanities scholars. We outline various steps of our collaborative digital humanities project, and we emphasize the utility of the proposed design by outlining various usage scenarios representing current research questions in classical philology.
