VAST Visual Analytics Challenge 2014 – Honorable Mention

This year, the Visual Analytics challenge organised by the IEEE VAST (Visual Analytics Science & Technology) conference again had a mini-challenge on Twitter data, and it is (near) real-time this time. The task is to monitor the Twitter feed and provide (near) real-time updates on important events that are happening and find information related to a suspected kidnapping.

Our entry won a ‘Honorable Mention for Effective Support for Analytic Sensemaking’, a step away from getting an award. You can see the system working in the demo video below (best in full screen with sound on).
