Interactive Text Visualization Browser

We have developed an interactive, visual survey of text visualization techniques, called Text Visualization Browser. This web-based system supports, for instance, the identification of related work or open research questions which are uncovered so far. All contained text visualization techniques were manually classified, and the tool provides features for searching and filtering.

More information can be found in the corresponding poster paper accepted for presentation at VIS 2014 in Paris, France.
