New York Times Data Grapher

Click here to go to the Data Graphing Interface

Last year I wrote a data mining application that can automatically gather term usage data from the New York Times website. I used this data for a number of my projects including Geohistoriography and Command Center. I have just released a public version of the graphing interface for others too explore and add terms to. Please don’t judge me by the stability of the interface, some elements are rather beta, and in general the page can be quite processor intensive because of all the flash, but I hope you enjoy exploring how the New York Times has used terms since 1851.
