"EWall" reminds me of DARPA's Intelligent Communicator Collaboration & Visualization project for emergency information management for situation analyses.

"Battelle / Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is developing a multi-resolution wavelet-based methodology, called TOPIC-O-GRAPHY(TM), to decompose
long natural language documents into thematically coherent and hierarchically-related sub-pieces. The concept is to exploit the hierarchical nature of
typical discourse to produce visualization and analysis tools that permit the information contained in long documents to be more quickly identified and
In prior TOPIC-O-GRAPHY work, basic concepts were developed and demonstrated on individual test documents. The focus of this project is to improve the
mathematics used in the wavelet processing for longer single documents and to extend the methodology to cross document analysis. The basic research will be
showcased by a suite of visualization and analytical tools promoting highly interactive information exploration, summarization, and retrieval."

Also, TOPIC-O-GRAPHY is a project funded by DARPA's Intelligent Communicator Collaboration & Visualization project for emergency information management for
situation analyses (see my e-mail on 9/18/01 about Visual Presentation Methods).
