CommViz -- Visualisation of Social Network Communications

Welcome to the website for the CommViz project! You can enter the visualisation here: http://commviz.eng.unimelb.edu.au/hive_plot.html

CommViz is an information visualisation tool that enables complex communication networks to be explored, exposing trends and patterns in the data at a glance. The tool combines unsupervised text analysis (topic modeling) with a visualisation approach called hive plots, to efficiently organise and provide insight into complex, high-dimensional communication data such as email or messages on social media.

We are developing CommViz by using the Enron email corpus as a case study. The integration of the social network characteristics with the message themes in a single visualisation is, to our knowledge, a novel contribution of the work.
