Abstract
The popularity of the internet and the number of its users increases rapidly.Everyday a huge amount of data is created. This amount of data makes itnecessary to find a useful representation of the data so that users are able tofind informations they are interested in. The data of this bachelor thesis comesfrom the social web platform Twitter and the goal is to implement a visualizationof search results. Compared to a simple tag cloud a graphically more advancedrepresentation which makes it also possible to search dynamically through thedata was the goal. Because of the fact that the data representation should bedynamically and the quality of the visualization should be as good as possiblethe program was implemented in JavaScript and PHP. The data source from theprogram STAT. STAT was implemented by Thomas Altmann for his bachelorthesis ”Erschließung und Analyse von Twitter Analyse Tools” (”Exploitationand Analysis of Twitter Analysis Tools”). STAT is a semantic Twitter analysistool and analyses tweets by their content. The goal is to compare differentvariations of graphical data representations and explore their potential for futureuse.3
