Data surrounds each and every one of us in our daily lives, ranging from exercise logs, to archives of our interactions with others on social media, to online resources pertaining to our hobbies. There is enormous potential for us to use these data to understand ourselves better and make positive changes in our lives. Visualization (Vis) and visual(More)
Video conferencing commonly employs a video portal metaphor to connect individuals from remote spaces. In this work, we explore an alternate metaphor, a shared depth-mirror, where video images of two spaces are fused into a single shared, depth-corrected video space. We realize this metaphor in OneSpace, where the space respects virtual spatial(More)
Software is typically developed incrementally and released in stages. Planning these releases involves deciding which features of the system should be implemented for each release. This is a complex planning process involving numerous trade-offs-constraints and factors that often make decisions difficult. Since the success of a product depends on this plan,(More)
We reflect on an infovis course with a focus on biomimicry that we taught in Winter 2016. This graduate course looked beyond visualization basics and fundamentals and focused on the idea of making use of a biomimetic approach in visualization. As global interest in visualization expands, exciting new research is emerging in many facets of visualization. One(More)
Introduction During the past two decades, information visualization (InfoVis) research has created new techniques and methods to support data-intensive analyses in science, industry and government. These have enabled a wide range of analysis tasks to be executed, which vary in terms of the type, and volume of data involved. However, the majority of this(More)
We present Fireflies, an exploration of bio-inspired visualization using animal swarming behaviours and plant phyllotaxis. We applied Fireflies to a Canadian attitudinal survey on HIV/AIDS. Information about the survey participants is encoded within different visual elements of fireflies; most importantly, the motion of the fireflies depicts comfort levels(More)
Personal informatics (PI) tools that support reflection are “personalized” insofar as the data consists of an individual’s data. Typically, this data is presented in visualizations that are generic and non-individuated. In this paper, we argue for deep personalization, where the visualizations are constructed by individuals. Such functionality gives(More)
Motivation is a key factor for introducing and maintaining healthy changes in behaviour. However, typical visualization methods (e.g., bar-, pie-, and line charts) hardly motivate individuals. We investigate how a plant---a living visualization---whose health relies on the plant owner's level of activity, can engage people in tracking and self-reflecting on(More)

In this work, we explore an alternate metaphor, a shared depthmirror, where video images of two spaces are fused into a single shared, depth-corrected video space.
