The digitisation of The Straits Times' 170-year-old archive has made it possible to carry out intense data analysis on the newspaper's online archive and capture the mood of the era in which the news stories appeared. This visualisation does that by highlighting keywords which appeared each year in The Straits Times, since 1845, and the stories that set the context for the keywords. The result is a dynamic portrayal of the changing buzzwords and social sentiment over time, which mirror Singapore's evolution.
