One of the most misunderstood, but potentially most visually impactful analysis is spatial concept mapping. Senior management, and decision makers are especially interested in this type of visualization and the use of one can help an analyst quickly compare the coverage between two organizations in an area of interest. Spatial concept mapping is related to clustering, or classification, since it generally begins with one of these methods, but adds an extra component, identification of relative similarity between the categories created, to one another. The tools involved take the document clusters, or classes, and arrange them in 2-dimensional space by considering the similarity of the documents, or clusters, relative to one another, over the entire collection. Documents that share elements in common are placed closer together spatially, while ones with less similarity, are placed further away. In this webinar two different tools will be used to demonstrate methods for making maps that support the conclusions an analyst is working to demonstrate to their clients. The webinar is one hour in length and can be downloaded or viewed at your leisure once it is paid for.
Once the session is paid for, the confirmation email will be sent containing the URL and password for accessing the session to view on demand along with a link to download presentation slides.
