  • Exploring Web Search Results Using Coordinated Views

    Page(s): 3 - 13

    Most Web search engines use a list-based representation of Web search results, promoting a sequential evaluation of the document surrogates. Commonly, these search engines only display ten document surrogates per page, limiting the users' ability to explore the search results. We have developed two systems to support the visual exploration of Web search results: HotMap and Concept Highlighter. In both of these systems, the search results are provided at two levels of detail: an overview map that provides a compact and abstract representation of the top 100 documents returned by the underlying search engine; and a detail window that shows 20 to 25 documents at a time. In this paper, we discuss how these coordinated views support the visual exploration of Web search results View full abstract»

  • exploRase: Exploratory Data Analysis of Systems Biology Data

    exploRase is a software tool for the exploratory analysis of systems biology data. Exploration of complex biochemical systems requires the integration of experimental data, such as transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic data, with biochemical networks. The networks specify the relationships between the entities (transcripts, proteins, metabolites) described by the "omics" data and therefore serve as a unifying framework for the analysis. exploRase delegates to the interactive graphics platform GGobi for the display of the experimental data in scatterplots, parallel coordinate plots, barcharts, and more. The plots are interlinked so that brushing an entity in one plot will result in its being brushed in the others. The GGobi plots are linked to a network display, so that corresponding node glyphs in the network are also brushed. exploRase provides a graphical user interface (GUI) with tables containing entity metadata fields, such as biological function. The tables have a color column that is synchronized with the brushing of the GGobi plots and the network view. We demonstrate the usefulness of exploRase by analyzing a transcriptomic dataset that compares a biotin-deficient Arabidopsis mutant with the wildtype. The next steps in development include implicitly linking views across datasets via network relationships and integrating exploRase with more diverse view types View full abstract»

  • Data Exploration Combining Kinetic and Static Visualization Displays

    Page(s): 21 - 30

    We describe interactions between kinetic (moving) and static information displays. We have implemented "moxel" kinetic displays in a classic discovery platform with many standard information visualization and analytic tools, and experimented with interactions between them. Moxels, which generalize pixels, are an advanced, moving, form of iconographic display of the kind first developed in static form by Pickett and White (1966). As with the static graphic icons of those early displays, moxels provide a way of mapping together in one image multiple data variables, but with potentially more potency with in-place motion. We show examples of how the two kinds of displays have been integrated, and discuss issues with the integration of dynamic and static visualizations in a single environment. We discuss several interaction paradigms between them including linked brushing, multiple selections, and operations on selected regions View full abstract»

  • The LuMPB Key: A Multiple View Interface to Explore High Dimensional Mountain Pine Beetle Simulation Data

    Page(s): 31 - 41

    In this paper we present the landscape unit mountain pine beetle key (LuMPB key) - a tool for assessing different mountain pine beetle (MPB) management scenarios on a landscape scale under various conditions. Based on a conceptual model of the simulation data we develop a multiple view interface which provides access to and exploration of the data. Different management scenarios can be compared and a given management scenario can be considered under varying simulation conditions, such as forest type, climate, and degree of initial beetle infestation. On the one hand we use a multiple view interface to provide understandable chunks of information. On the other hand we use it to communicate that different views of the data exist. Views are optionally linked together to support this awareness of possible different ways of looking at this data View full abstract»

  • MultiSOM: A Multiview Neural Model for Accurately Analyzing and Mining Complex Data

    Page(s): 42 - 54

    In the procedure of information analysis, like in the domain of patent analysis, the complexity of the studied topics and the accuracy of the question to be answered may often lead the analyst to partition his reasoning into viewpoints. Most of the classical information analysis tools can only manage an analysis of the studied domain in a global way. The information analysis tool is considered in this paper is the MultiSOM tool, whose core model represents a significant extension of the classical Kohonen SOM neural model. The MultiSOM neural-based tool introduces the concepts of viewpoints and dynamics into the information analysis with its multi-maps displays and its inter-map communication process. The dynamic information exchange between maps can be exploited by an analyst in order to perform cooperative deduction between several different analyzes that have been performed on the same data. This paper demonstrates the efficiency of a viewpoint-oriented analysis as compared to a global analysis in the domain of patents. Both objective and subjective quality criteria are taken into account for quality evaluation View full abstract»

    Data sets in the biological domain are often semantically complex and difficult to integrate and visualise. Converting between the file formats required by interactive analysis tools and those used by the global databases is a costly and error prone process. This paper describes a data model designed to enable efficient rendering of and interaction with biological data, and two demonstrator applications from different fields of protein analysis that provide co-ordinated views of data held in the underlying model View full abstract»

    Modeling virtual buildings is an essential task in the city planning domain whereas several aspects have essential influence. Planners have to deal with different types of potentially multiform datasets; moreover they have to consider certain guidelines and constraints that are imposed on the development areas to which buildings are related. The planning process can be divided into different subtasks with varying requirements regarding the interaction techniques that are used for their accomplishment. To incorporate these aspects multiple view systems have proven enormous potential in order to provide efficient user interfaces. In this paper, we present strategies for modeling virtual building entities via a multiple view system as part of a 3D decision support system that enables the intuitive generation and evaluation of building proposals. City planners have been involved in the design process of the system, in particular the multiple view concepts. Therefore each view of the system, which visualizes different aspects concerning the underlying models, meets the demands of city planners. Furthermore, we present both coupled and uncoupled interaction techniques between different views with respect to requirements of the city planning domain View full abstract»

  • Metavisual Exploration and Analysis of DEVise Coordination in Improvise

    Conceptualizing the interactive structure of visualization tools is critical for successful exploration and analysis. As the prominence of multiple coordinated views in visualization increases, better understanding of coordination becomes more and more important for developing improved coordination models that lead to farther reaching applications of coordination. This paper describes how metavisual exploration and analysis of coordination structure and view layout in DEVise visualizations evolved from hand-drawn diagrams to custom-coded software to two Improvise visualizations. The coordination and visual abstraction models implemented in Improvise can be clearly traced back to earlier models implemented in DEVise View full abstract»

    As mobile computing technologies become common, there is an ever-greater interest in evaluation and analysis of such systems. Evaluating the use of large, multi-user, mobile systems can be a challenging task and can be aided by analysing both system-generated logs of activity and video of user behaviour. Replayer provides a distributed, cross platform toolkit for utilising multiple coordinated visualisations in the analysis and understanding of these heterogeneous forms of data. In this paper we pay particular attention to the methods used to combine recorded media such as video with numerical visualisations such as histograms and time series graphs. We examine in some detail the architecture behind the system, and the techniques used to maintain synchronisation and coordination when interactively brushing components. We demonstrate how Replayer can be used to explore data sets using an array of available visualisations, can focus analysis of video data on the most salient periods and can provide context for every area of the recorded data View full abstract»
