MS Thesis - Visualizing Digital Collections at Archive-It

“Visualizing Digital Collections at Archive-It”, was the subject of a recent MS thesis by Kalpesh Padia (who is continuing his Ph.D. studies at NC State University) and a JCDL 2012 short paper by Kalpesh Padia, Yasmin AlNoamany, and Michele C. Weigle. In order to provide a better visual experience to users of Archive-It collections, we implemented six different visualizations (treemap, time cloud, bubble chart, image plot, timeline, and wordle). The work also provides a rule-based categorization of sites in collections that lack a curator-defined grouping.
