Time magazine metadata visualizations
This set includes visualization which use our manual annotations of all covers of Time magazine (4553 covers, 1923-2009).
We use manual annotations to tag semantic features which are hard to analyze automatically using computer vision.

Of course this takes time so we would not do this on large data sets such as our 1 million Manga pages project - but for smaller sets such as Time covers, this is a useful approach.
