We have made the Jigsaw visual analytics system available to anyone for 
download.  The link can be found at 
http://www.cc.gatech.edu/gvu/ii/jigsaw.  Jigsaw may be useful for 
understanding collections of text documents -- It combines computational 
text mining techniques with interactive visualizations.  The system just 
requires that you have java on your computer.

The website above includes a tutorial document as well as a series of 
short tutorial videos.  The site (and distribution) also includes a 
number of example document collections in a convenient XML-ish format. 
One that may be of special interest to this community is a collection of 
all InfoVis and VAST papers -- not the full papers' text, but the title, 
abstract, authors, conference, year, and other metadata.
