It's hard to visualize that in a bar chart,…but using a co-occurrence matrix, you can show density…of occurrence with depth of color.…You could also use different types of color…to show different types of project.…There's an awful lot you can do with a co-occurrence matrix,…and of course, you can animate it over time.…And if your text data are actually showing relationships,…you might want to use something like a chord diagram.…Let's say you've got some unstructured data,…
