Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) This paper proposes a visualization tool, called Topic Tracer, to show topic transitions of not only a story existing in a document but also stories traversing over several documents. To visualize topic transition, first we have developed an analytical method to divide a document into parts. Then, we introduce a Word Colony to show topic terms in a whole or a part of document. It is a directed graph which shows the dependency relationships among terms occurrences in the target document. The Word Colony helps users to grasp the overview of a document. The concatenation of Word Colony gives plots of an existing story or crossing stories over several documents. This paper explains the concept and implementation of Topic Tracer.
