What are Cultural Analytics, Aggregation, and Data-Mining?

The field of cultural analytics has emerged over the past few years, utilizing the tools of high-end computational analysis and data visualization to dissect large scale cultural data sets.

Aggregation of large-scale amounts of information allows data or files to be merged and then outputted into displays that highlight distinctive features such as data points,clusters, and trends.

Data-mining is a term that covers a host of techniques for analyzing digital material by “parameterizing” some feature of information and extracting it.
