Information visualization systems, such as IN-SPIRE™, allow thousands of documents to be visually, succinctly described, navigated, and accessed. The ThemeView™ 3D visual landscape shown in the figure reflects the high-dimensional properties and relationships of sets of documents by showing clusters of themes and their strengths. The complex content is visible. Exploration, summarization, comparison, trends over time, tracking, and many other operations are more efficient. The strengths of visualization and document vector mathematics are combined to achieve a new analytical capability for massive data [Hetzler & Turner, 2004].
