Abstract

In the era of big data it is increasingly difficult for an analyst to extract meaningful knowledge from a sea of information. We present TweetXplorer, a system for analysts with little information about an event to gain knowledge through the use of effective visualization techniques. Using tweets collected during Hurricane Sandy as an example, we will lead the reader through a workow that exhibits the functionality of the system.
