The analysis of temporal relationships in large amounts of graph data has gained significance in recent years. Information providers such as journalists seek to bring order into their daily work when dealing with temporally distributed events and the network of entities, such as persons, organisations or locations, which are related to these events. In this paper we introduce a time-oriented graph visualisation approach which maps temporal information to visual properties such as size, transparency and position and, combined with advanced graph navigation features, facilitates the identification and exploration of temporal relationships. To evaluate our visualisation, we compiled a dataset of ~120.000 news articles from international press agencies including Reuters, CNN, Spiegel and Aljazeera. Results from an early pilot study show the potentials of our visualisation approach and its usefulness for analysing temporal relationships in large data sets.
