Game2Learn: building CS1 learning games for retention
Results show that this method of building games to teach engages students at multiple levels, inspiring newer students that one day their homework may all be games, and encouraging advanced students to continue on into graduate studies in computing.
Making Public Safety Data Accessible in the Westside Atlanta Data Dashboard
A human-centered approach to understand the needs of users and to build accessible mapping tools for visualization and analysis is described, which include a variety of overlays that allow users to spatially correlate features of the built environment as well as crime prevention efforts.
Drawing Data on Maps : Sketch-Based Spatiotemporal Visualization
This poster presents SpaceSketch, a tool for rapidly constructing map-based visualizations using spatial data that utilizes a sketch-based approach to visualization specification in which hand-drawn trajectories and regions are encoded using a user-specified model.
Game2Learn: A study of games as tools for learning introductory programming concepts
This paper presents the first round of rapid prototyping, which resulted in two prototype role playing games designed to teach basic programming concepts, and presents the outcome of the usability study of these two games with computing students, and directions of future work.
TypoTweet Maps: Characterizing Urban Areas through Typographic Social Media Visualization
TypoTweet Maps is introduced: a technique for constructing representations of neighborhood topics as typographic maps that show differences in neighborhood topics using only text, avoiding the channel interference of feature labels that are unnecessary for residents who are familiar with the shape of the city.
HotSketch: Drawing Police Patrol Routes among Spatiotemporal Crime Hotspots
The research is presented to couple spatiotemporal analysis of historical crime data with sketch-based interaction methods and describes through a set of use cases within the domain of police patrol route planning.

- 1 November 2013
The approach to developing a Precision Information Environment (PIE) that streamlines access to multiple information resources by fusing heterogeneous information for presentation through a single access point and supports role-tailorable understanding of the unified data sources through a flexible workspace is described.

Nodes, Paths, and Edges: Using Mental Maps to Augment Crime Data Analysis in Urban Spaces
A technique for using mental maps consisting of three fundamental elements: nodes, paths, and edges is proposed, which can be used to augment crime data analysis in urban spaces by incorporating the values and knowledge of citizens.
