In a time when a single sporting event can elicit millions of Tweets the volume of expressions of sentiment available is far too large to be read by an individual in real time. TriVis is a visualisation design that uses a modified scatter plot with three axes to allow the user to read and understand multidimensional data at a glance. We examined the readability of the visualisation using data collected from a golf tournament and plotted the sentiment towards golfers in real time during play. TriVis visualisations are simple, easy to understand and offer insights into obvious using other methods.
