Figure 12a. Content Summary. The x-axis represents time; categories generated by the SOM are laid vertically. Each green line represents one message. The vertical thickness of each subtopic indicates its activity on a particular day. The length in the x-dimension of each subtopic represents the time duration of that subtopic.

Figure 12b. Interaction Summary. The panel is divided into sub-gardens based on the SOM output. Each sub-garden is a subtopic. Each flower represents one thread, where the number of petals represents the number of messages posted for the thread the number of leaves represents the number of participants in the thread and the height of flowers represents the time duration of the thread.

Figure 12c. Expert Indicator. The interface is divided into sub-gardens based on the SOM output. Each sub-garden is a subtopic. Each flower represents one person, where the number of petals represents the number of messages posted by this person for this subtopic the number of leaves represents the number of threads participated by this person in the subtopic and the height of flowers represents how long this person has stayed in this subtopic.
