Information Visualization [chapter]

Daniel A. Keim
2005 Exploring Geovisualization  
Information visualization and visual data mining can help to deal with the flood of information.  ...  There are a large number of information visualization techniques that have been developed over the last two decades to support the exploration of large data sets.  ...  For analyzing the patterns, the user needs to drill-down and access details of the data. Visualization technology may be used for all three steps of the data exploration process.  ...

Business Information Visualization

David P. Tegarden
1999 Communications of the Association for Information Systems  
With the flood of data produced by today's information systems, something must be done to allow business decision-makers to extract the information the data contains.  ...  The recent advances in visualization technologies provide the capability to begin to use human visual/spatial abilities to solve the abstract problems found in business.  ...  It was received on September 2, 1998 and was with the author for approximately one month. The paper was originally given as a Tutorial at AIS Americas '98, Baltimore, MD, in August 1998.  ...

Visual information extraction

Yonatan Aumann, Ronen Feldman, Yair Liberzon, Benjamin Rosenfeld, Jonathan Schler
2006 Knowledge and Information Systems  
In this paper, we show how to make use of this visual information for information extraction.  ...  Most information extraction systems ignore most of this visual information, processing the text as a linear sequence of words. Thus, much valuable information is lost.  ...  In such a system, the visual approach presented here would be one of the components in a combined, integrated approach. The development of such a system is left for future research.  ...

Visualizing Qualitative Information

Debra Sloane
2014 The Qualitative Report  
The abundance of qualitative data in today's society and the need to easily scrutinize, digest, and share this information calls for effective visualization and analysis tools.  ...  Amid a discussion of the need for more powerful qualitative analysis and visualization tools, this article presents a device that takes us toward better representations of qualitative results.  ...  This demonstrates the need for tools that help users visually analyze findings, share results and connect data directly to findings.  ...

Interpreting Information Visualization [chapter]

Karolina Uggla
2021 Digital Human Sciences: New Objects – New Approaches  
Information visualization has become a prevailing part of our visual culture, a research field, and a line of work for designers.  ...  First, there is a need to refer to some different definitions and general concepts, such as the naming of phases in the visualization process, the naming of different visualization types, and their components  ...  For instance, Andy Kirk's Data Visualisation (2019), a handbook aimed at designers, uses a pragmatic approach to the concept of data.  ...

2010 Proceedings of the 3rd BELIV'10 Workshop on BEyond time and errors: novel evaLuation methods for Information Visualization - BELIV '10  
Interactive Information Visualization methods engage users in exploratory behavior. Detailed information about such processes can help developers to improve the design of such methods.  ...  Subjects in our study engaged in some activities (e.g. adding data, changing form of visualization) significantly more than in others.  ...  The visualization is based on a spring metaphor and leads to the formation of clusters of persons who gave similar answers. Morse and Lewis [22] describe a similar approach.  ...

Christopher Ahlberg, Ben Shneiderman
1994 Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems celebrating interdependence - CHI '94  
This paper offers new principles for visual information seeking (VIS).  ...  A key concept is to support browsing, which is distinguished from familiar query composition and information retrieval because of its emphasis on rapid filtering to reduce result sets, progressive refinement  ...  The key to these principles is understanding the enormous capacity for human visual information processing.  ...
