Abstract

The analysis of big data, although potentially a very rewarding
task, can present difficulties due to the complexity inherent to such
datasets. We suggest that conceptual graphs provide a mechanism for
representing knowledge about a domain that can also be used as a useful
scaffold for big data analysis. Conceptual graphs may be used as a means
to collaboratively build up a robust model forming the skeleton of a data
analysis project. This paper describes a case study in which conceptual
graphs were used to underpin an exploration of a corpus of tweets relating
to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Through
this process we will demonstrate the emerging model built up of the
data landscape involved and of the business structures that underlie the
technical frameworks relied upon by microblogging software.
