Final Year Project

3D Metaphor for Interactive Visual Analytics Of Social Media Data

The goal of this study is to investigate and develop a 3D metaphor for interactive visual analytics of social media data. The general definition of visual metaphor is the representation of a person, place, thing, or idea by means of a visual image that suggests a particular association or point of similarity. This work focuses on the use of metaphor for social media data exploration. Which will help others to analyze the social media data through the 3D interface.
