Free registration required

Executive Summary

People use weblogs to express thoughts, present ideas and share knowledge, therefore weblogs are extraordinarily valuable resources, among others, for trend analysis. Trends are derived from the chronological sequence of blog post count per topic. The comparison with a reference corpus allows qualitative statements over identified trends. The authors propose a cross-language blog mining and trend visualisation system to analyze blogs across languages and topics. The trend visualisation facilitates the identification of trends and the comparison with the reference news article corpus.
