We will show how to use Apache tools to dig through unstructured text, analyze and visualize the data and iterate this to create a compelling visual experience and drill down the data. As visualizations we will use word clouds and histograms from D3.js. We will explain the whole procedure from getting, preparing and indexing real-world data to formulating the query and using the results.

Then we will present the animated visualization of the above data. We will demonstrate the flexibility of our Big Data solution and show how it can be adopted to specific users’ needs in realtime. Data-wise, we will also visualize Hacker News. We will elaborate on both the benefits and the limits of word clouds as a Big Data visualization tool.

We will give an outlook to possible other use cases (like mailing list mood detection, wikis etc.) and talk about detecting trends and outliers.
