Distant Reading Lab- Cole Welhoff and Kyle Mann

The graph helps us see trends in the use of the word vicious throughout different articles. This makes it easier for us to see correlations in how the word is used and in what context. This could help us pinpoint author viewpoints or the tone the word is used in. The visualization of todays lab makes looking for the use of the word throughout many other issues easier. The trends allow us to compile all of the data into one set and see the data all at once instead of having to manually look through each article for the examples. The visualization allows us to analyze the data in less time.
