Topic Plotting

A new feature has been added to visualise and examine the topic model. Two topics are selected by the user and grants belonging to both topics are plotted on a scatter chart with each axis representing the proportion those topics contribute to the grant. It is easy to distinguish grants from different awarding agencies and individual agencies can be switched on and off by clicking the key. Hovering over grants supply the grant number and topic proportions and clicking a grant navigates to the grant details page. The plot can also be scaled by selecting an area.

You can select your own topics to plot by launching the Topic Plotter
