CompaniON (as in Companies of ONtario) is an interactive two-dimensional map portraying a sample set of 3000 Ontario companies such that companies with similar profiles/descriptions are clustered closer to one another. Such mapping was created by just relying on the raw text documents describing the company profiles/descriptions. More info here.
