Survey on the Analysis of User Interactions and Visualization Provenance (EuroVis/Computer Graphics Forum)

EuroVis/Computer Graphics Forum 2020 There is fast-growing literature on provenance-related research, covering aspects such as its theoretical framework, use cases, and techniques for capturing, visualizing, and analyzing provenance data. As a result, there is an increasing need to identify and taxonomize the existing scholarship. Such an organization of the research landscape will provide a complete […]

TimeSets: Temporal sensemaking in intelligence analysis (IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications)

IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications (CG&A) 2020 TimeSets is a temporal data visualization technique designed to reveal insights into event sets, such as all the events linked to one person or organization. In this paper we describe two TimeSets-based visual analytics tools for intelligence analysis. In the first case, TimeSets is integrated with other visual […]

Putting the “i” in interaction: Interactive interfaces personalized to individuals (IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications)

IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications (CG&A) 2020 Interactive data exploration and analysis is an inherently personal process. One’s background, experience, interests, cognitive style, personality, and other sociotechnical factors often shape such a process, as well as the provenance of exploring, analyzing, and interpreting data. This viewpoint posits both what personal information and how such personal […]

Guest editor for special issue on “Provenance analysis for sensemaking” ( IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications)

This special issue covers research that analyses provenance to better understand how users do sensemaking (information triage, foraging, reasoning, and hypothesis forming and testing). The detailed scope can be found in the Call for Paper. The special issue is now published as part of this issue of IEEE Computer Graphics and Application.
