Visualising Article Similarities in Wikipedia


In this poster we present intermediate results regarding visual text analytics on Wikipedia. We implemented a visualization providing insight about similarities among Wikipedia articles in terms of structure as well as content. The presented data was gathered and processed via a pairwise comparison of all Wikipedia articles. Comparisons were appropriately pruned due to time and memory reasons when providing our in-memory database with the computed similarity values for visualization.
