Concept Topics
Dashboard Screen

After logging in to Brainspace and clicking a Dataset card in the Datasets display screen, the Analytics Dashboard will open.

The Analytics Dashboard includes the following features:

Dashboard_Screen01.png

Callout 1: Dropdown menus to open a different dataset, an existing focus, or an existing CMML classifier.

Callout 2: Links to open the Analytics (default view), Notebooks, and Supervised Learning pages or the User dropdown menu to access other user and system information. The Administration option in the User dropdown menu is only available for Group Admins and Super Admins.

Callout 3: Text field to search for concepts in a dataset, icons to manage search results, and links for advanced searches, search history, and saved searches.

Callout 4: Links to open the Cluster Wheel, Communications, Conversations, or Thread Analysis pages.

Callout 5: Bar graph displays the relative volume of original documents, near-duplicate documents, exact-duplicate documents, and documents that have not been analyzed in a dataset.

Callout 6: Timeline chart displays relative document volumes by year, month, day, hour, or minute in logarithmic scale (default) or linear scale. Timeline chart will display a chevron icon if no documents are present for two or more consecutive time periods. For example, the following image shows that no documents exist in the dataset for years 1981 through 1997, inclusive:

Timeline_skip.png

If no documents are present for only one time period (e.g., one year or one month), the Timeline chart will display a missing bar, not a chevron.

Callout 7: Heatmap displays a chart for term volumes by top terms over time and a chart for anomaly detection term volumes by terms over time. The Heatmap will display a chevron icon if no terms are present for two or more consecutive time periods. For example, the following image shows that no terms exist in the dataset for years 1981 through 1997, inclusive:

Heatmap_Timeline_skip.png

If no terms are present for only one time period (e.g., one year or one month), the Heatmap will display blank cells in the column, not a chevron.

Callout 8: Three panes display the top terms in the dataset in one pane and two faceted data panes for viewing and searching by metadata.

Callout 9: Results pane includes the total number of documents in the dataset or search, a sort-by relevancy or metadata menu, relevancy distribution graph for documents in the dataset or search, and list of document cards in the dataset or search. The Results pane is only visible for active searches.

Document Bar

The Document Bar displays the total number of documents and a break-down of the total number of documents by original, near-duplicate, exact-duplicate, and not-analyzed documents. This can be the complete dataset if no filter is active or the result of any search or other filter.

Document_Bar.png

Click the Document Bar to view only original, near-duplicate, exact-duplicate, or not-analyzed documents in the Analytics Dashboard.

Heatmaps

The Heatmap is disabled by default to increase the speed of search results in Analytics. The Heatmap includes two views—Document Volume and Anomaly Detection.

Document Volume Heatmap

The Document Volume Heatmap displays the co-occurrence of the top five terms over time.

Document_Volume_Heatmap.png

Callout 1: View the default top five terms in a search.

Callout 2: Create and manage custom top-terms terms lists.

Callout 3: Show more terms (up to ten).

Callout 4: View document volume for a node in the Heatmap or view the documents associated with a node in the Dashboard. Click on a node to execute a search for that term on that date interval.

Callout 5: Switch to the Anomaly Detection view.

Callout 6: Select multiple nodes to add multiple terms to a search.

Callout 7: Update the Heatmap automatically after a search. If not enabled, the Heatmap will automatically disable after each search to provide a more responsive update to the Dashboard.

Anomaly Detection Heatmap

The Anomaly Detection Heatmap displays the frequency of the terms over time. Anomaly detection uses a standard score to determine when a term’s frequency is higher than average. Brighter colors indicate higher-than-average usage.

Anomaly_Detection_Heatmap.png

Callout 1: View the default top five terms in a search.

Callout 2: Create and manage custom top-terms terms lists.

Callout 3: Show more terms (up to ten).

Callout 4: View term frequency for a node in the Heatmap or view the documents associated with a node in the Dashboard. Click on a node to execute a search for that term on that date interval.

Callout 5: Switch to the Document Volume view.

Callout 6: Select multiple nodes to add multiple terms to a search.

Callout 7: Update the Heatmap automatically after a search.

Top Terms Pane

Top term values are document counts based on the frequency of their occurrence in de-duplicated documents with boilerplate and email headers removed. The Top Terms list is sorted by UsageScore, which is calculated using both the document count for the specific term and its weight. Clicking on a term will execute that term as a keyword search, which will reveal the actual number of documents containing that term.

Note

De-duplicated document counts can differ considerably from total document counts.

The Top Terms pane displays the top-ten terms by default:

Top_Terms_Pane.png

Callout 1: Filter the list of terms.

Callout 2: Download a *.csv file of top terms, which includes the DocumentCount and the UsageScore for each term.

Callout 3: Rather than clicking on a term to run just that term as a search, tick the checkbox to add it as a Boolean OR search with other terms that have the checkbox ticked after clicking on Add to Search.

Callout 4: View minimum document counts for top terms. To see the actual counts, click on the term to run it as a keyword search.

Note

Minimum document count does not include duplicates or other excluded documents.

Callout 5: Add the next ten top terms to the Top Terms pane.

Faceted Data Panes

Brainspace provides two faceted metadata panes so that you can compare two different sets of metadata values side-by-side.

Faceted_Data_Pane.png

Callout 1: View the first ten metadata values for the selected metadata field. Click to run a faceted search for that metadata field and value. In the above example, clicking on “choate” will return every document that has a value of “choate” in the BCC field.

Callout 2: Select a different metadata field dropdown menu.

Callout 3: Filter the metadata values to look for a more specific value.

Callout 4: Export the selected metadata values to a *.csv file.

Callout 5: Add the next ten metadata values to the list.

Callout 6: Execute a faceted search or search for all selected metadata values.

Timeline Chart Overview

After opening a dataset in the Analytics Dashboard, the full Timeline chart for the dataset will display by default.

The Timeline chart includes the following features:

Timeline_chart.png

Callout 1: Dropdown menu provides options for viewing the Timeline chart for sent, created, or received documents.

Callout 2: Clickable bars for viewing the Timeline chart by year (default view), month, week, day, hour, or minute.

Callout 3: Switch the Timeline chart from logarithmic scale (default) to linear scale .

Callout 4: Identify missing documents in the dataset .

User Dropdown Menu

The User dropdown menu, accessible from every page in Brainspace, includes the following features:

User_Dropdown_Menu.png

Callout 1: Navigate to the Administration screen to add new datasets, manage existing datasets, download system-wide dataset reports and individual dataset reports, manage users and groups, connectors, services, portable models, and troubleshoot errors.

Callout 2: View notifications from Brainspace.

Callout 3: Edit your personal information and manage your password.

Callout 4: View the Brainspace GUI and API versions, batch tools jars, and connector versions available for your Brainspace instance.

Callout 5: Log in to Brainspace Support Station online help.

Callout 6: Log out of Brainspace.
