In this work we present APA Labs, a generic framework for visualizing the news article domain. APA Labs is a web-based platform enabling retrieval and analysis of news repositories provided by the Austrian Press Agency. APA Labs is designed as a rich internet application combined with a modular system of interactive visualizations. News articles are analyzed using domain specific named entity extraction methods combined with language specific heuristics. The proposed methods were subject to an evaluation procedure outlined in this contribution. This article illustrates the domain, the underlying concepts and implementation details. Several visualization modules are presented and an outlook on planned modules is given. Being online for around six months the community feedback as well as the easy integration of new modules shows the success of the underlying concept and the platform itself.
