Those of you who know we well know this is one of my fav topics. Seeing very large amounts of data represented instantly in a visual way so you can see outlying events and trends and themes and subtle nuances easily.
The BBC has just released a nice little video on how they are using this, very impressive. If this is what your media have, imagine what your government and military are doing. Reminds me of all the fun stuff we did in financial markets too catching insider traders and monitoring trade flows.
