State of the Union Sentence Bars

By: Jeff Clark    Date: Thu, 01 May 2008

As I pointed out in my last post, Directed Sentence Drawings generated from a text make it extremely difficult to see in what order the various topics were discussed and that a simple bar for each sentence in the order they occurred in the text and coloured by topic would be much better in most respects. I've built a graphic to show what I mean. I have also added the most frequent topic words for each set of 10 consecutive sentences.
