A graphical filter/flow representation of Boolean queries: A prototype implementation and evaluation

Degi Young, Ben Shneiderman
1993 Journal of the American Society for Information Science  
In an attempt to overcome this limitation, a graphical Filter/Flow representation of Boolean queries was designed to provide users with an interface that visually conveys the meaning of the Boolean operators  ...  This was accomplished by implementing a graphical interface prototype that uses the metaphor of water flowing through filters.  ...  Acknowledgments: We appreciate the financial support of General Electric Information Services and express our thanks to our proof readers: Dave Turo, Catherine Plaisant, Andy Sears, Dave Carr, Scott Gilkeson  ...

Visual SPARQL querying based on extended filter/flow graphs

Florian Haag, Steffen Lohmann, Steffen Bold, Thomas Ertl
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 International Working Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces - AVI '14  
Based on the concept of extended filter/flow graphs, we present a novel approach for visual querying that addresses the unique specifics of SPARQL and RDF.  ...  It has been implemented in a visual querying framework and tested on different RDF datasets, including DBpedia that is used as an example in this paper.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank our student research assistants Sukanya Bhowmik and Hao Li for their assistance with the prototype implementation.  ...

A Filter Flow Visual Querying Language and Interface for Spatial Databases

A.J. Morris, A.I. Abdelmoty, B.A. El-Geresy, C.B. Jones
2004 Geoinformatica  
A number of approaches for visual representation of query languages have been proposed. These make use of visual components such as forms, diagrams, icons and images [2] .  ...  This language is mainly textual, and the graphical aspect of the language refers to the selection of the querying items.  ...  The system does not require the use of parentheses and the graphical diagrams A FILTER FLOW VISUAL QUERYING LANGUAGE remove the confusion regarding precedence of operations.  ...

Simplifying filter/flow graphs by subgraph substitution

F. Haag, S. Lohmann, T. Ertl
2012 2012 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC)  
Although the filter/flow model is a useful concept for query visualization, the resulting graphs can be quite complex.  ...  An example of news filtering illustrates how the substitutions can be used to simplify the overall structure of filter/flow graphs and increase their readability.  ...  We are in the process of implementing a prototypical filter/flow implementation in order to conduct user studies.  ...

Adaptable Filter Graphs - Towards Highly-Configurable Query Visualizations

Florian Haag, Michael Raschke, Thomas Ertl
2012 Jahrestagung der Gesellschaft für Informatik  
This paper presents a transformation schema for filter/flow graphs to make them even more intuitively usable and to support distributed collaborative use.  ...  To alleviate this complexity for queries, various visualization techniques have been developed in the past. We have examined the filter/flow concept.  ...  Acknowledgments This research was funded through the IP-KOM-ÖV project (German Ministry of Economy and Technology (BMWi) grant number 19P10003N).  ...

Kaleidoscape: A 3D Environment for Querying ODMG Compliant Databases [chapter]

Norman Murray, Carole Goble, Norman Paton
1998 Visual Database Systems 4 (VDB4)  
Kaleidoscape is a three dimensional (3D) implementation of a data-flow oriented visual query language, which has been implemented in 3D to examine the advantages and disadvantages of such an interface  ...  These queries are then translated into the ODMG standard textual query language OQL for evaluation, the results of which can be viewed and browsed from within the Kaleidoscape environment.  ...  The boolean or is visualised by the branching of the filter flow paths.  ...

Kaleidoquery

Norman Murray, Norman Paton, Carole Goble
1998 Proceedings of the working conference on Advanced visual interfaces - AVI '98  
The queries in this implementation of the language are translated into OQL and then passed to the object database O¢ for evaluation.  ...  We will describe the design philosophy behind the filter flow nature of Kaleidoquery and present each of the language's constructs, giving examples and relating them to OQL.  ...  We also hope that the filter flow approach to query construction will make the task of building and understanding queries easier than graph based queries, although we shall of course need to test this  ...

Design And Evaluation Of A Visualization Interface For Querying Large Unstructured Sound Databases

Frederic Font, Gerard Roma, Jordi Janer
2010 Zenodo  
The aim of this thesis is the design of a visualization interface that let users graphically define queries for the Freesound Project database (https://freesound.org) and retrieve suitable results for  ...  Users perform queries by graphically specifying a target for each one of these perceptual aspects, that is to say, queries are specified by defining the physical properties of the sound itself rather than  ...  Another approach (ii) to define queries is the filter-flow model. In this case, query is defined by a sequence of scrollable lists where users select attributes for the query.  ...
