Social Media Visualization tools and techniques

Steven Oakley


Supervised by Nick J Avis; Moderated by Xianfang Sun

We are collaborating with the School of Social Sciences to create a toolkit of techniques to harvest, analyse and visualize social media data such as content posted on Facebook and twitter.

The project will involve conducting a survey of the available visualization tools presently available and analysis of their capabilities and the types of data they are applicable to.

More able students will investigate some of these techniques further and develop software to allow these to be harnessed within the proposed system.
