In this visual data analytics project, my team developed a sensemaking tool called "The Alderwood Times". The dataset includes more than two hundred text files with a wide range of topics such as sports, council annoucement and obituaries in a town called Alderwood.

We implemented this newspaper metaphor as our visual design, developing the tool with Aylien API extrating entities as sentiment and dates, and plotted these data in a trend line chart. We also have build-in search box and pinboard to facilitate the sensemaking process.
