We’ve been working on various visualizations for our web archives collections. One bottleneck was topic modeling using MALLET: both due to limitations on just how fast we can get it running, but also into how to make the results usable for the average user.
Termite was one such option. While it has decent documentation, it can be difficult to munge data into it.
As with all our walkthroughs, it is available in our GitHub repository as Setting up Termite Visualizations on OS X”. Feedback is always appreciated, either here or by submitting a Pull request.
