Hierarchical-Temporal Data Visualization Using a Tree-Ring Metaphor [chapter]

Roberto Therón
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper describes a novel and efficient visualization technique intended for hierarchical-temporal data using a tree-ring like layout.  ...  By using several information visualization strategies, such as focus + context, the tree-ring approach has the ability to visualize and navigate these, potentially complex, hierarchies trough time.  ...  This paper presents Treevolution, a novel visualization tool that uses a tree-ring metaphor in combination with focus + context techniques, that can be useful for hierarchical-temporal data visualization  ...

SplitStreams: A Visual Metaphor for Evolving Hierarchies [article]

Fabian Bolte, Mahsan Nourani, Eric D. Ragan, Stefan Bruckner
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We propose a novel visual metaphor capable of providing a static overview of all hierarchical changes over time, as well as clearly outlining the hierarchical structure at each individual time step.  ...  The visualization of hierarchically structured data over time is an ongoing challenge and several approaches exist trying to solve it.  ...  Dynamic Hierarchies: In the tree-ring metaphor by Therón [29] , nodes of a tree are placed on concentric circles based on their date of addition to the tree, where larger rings correspond to later points  ...

TimeSpiderTrees: A Novel Visual Metaphor for Dynamic Compound Graphs

Michael Burch, Michael Fritz, Fabian Beck, Stephan Diehl
2010 2010 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing  
In this paper we propose a novel visual metaphor, called Time-SpiderTrees, which is based on a radial layout.  ...  The strength of this novel visualization technique lies in the visual encoding of time-series relational data in a single view without animation, which helps to preserve the mental map and hence to reduce  ...  Visual Clutter in Graphs Graphs are widely used to model relations among objects. A widespread visual metaphor is the representation of this relational data as node-link diagrams.  ...

Carbonic: A Framework for Creating and Visualizing Complex Compound Graphs

Cristian Rodriguez, Pablo Toharia, Luis Pastor, Susana Mata
2022 Applied Sciences  
Compound graphs allow us to represent the existing relationships between nodes that are themselves hierarchically structured, so they are a natural substrate to support multiscale analysis of complex graphs  ...  Advances in data generation and acquisition have resulted in a volume of available data of such magnitude that our ability to interpret and extract valuable knowledge from them has been surpassed.  ...  The central ring corresponds to the tree root and the number of concentric rings is the depth of the tree. The color and the size of the sectors can be used to map a certain feature of the data.  ...

Browsers to Support Awareness and Social Interaction

A. Lee, A. Girgensohn, Jun Zhang
2004 IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications  
We argue, using two case study examples, that social browsers which focus on particular social information to create awareness and to reveal particular facets of a community, make use of good visual design  ...  This form of social browsing is of interest as a visual analytic problem for two reasons.  ...  Ecosystem Metaphor We exploit an ecosystem metaphor to create the eTree visualization. The visual metaphor consists of the different parts of a tree.  ...
