The field of information visualization offers little methodological guidance to practitioners who seek to design novel systems. Though many sources describe the foundations of the domain, few discuss practical methods for solving visualization problems. One frequently cited guideline to design is the "Visual information-seeking mantra", proposed by(More)
Information Visualization (InfoVis) is at least in part defined by a process that occurs within the subjective internal experience of the users of visualization tools. Hence, users' interaction with these tools is seen as an 'experience'. Relying on standard quantitative usability measures evaluates the interface. Yet, there is more to users' interaction(More)
Information visualization is an experience in which both the aesthetic representations and interaction are part. Such an experience can be augmented through close consideration of its major components. Interaction is crucial to the experience, yet it has seldom been adequately explored in the field. We claim that direct mediated interaction can augment such(More)
Rapid Serial Visual Presentation (RSVP) is a technique that allows images to be presented sequentially in the time-domain, thereby offering an alternative to the conventional concurrent display of images in the space domain. Such an alternative offers potential advantages where display area is at a premium. However, notwithstanding the flexibility to employ(More)
The use of digital technologies is now widespread and increasing, but is not always optimized for effective learning. Teachers in higher education have little time or support to work on innovation and improvement of their teaching, which often means they simply replicate their current practice in a digital medium. This paper makes the case for a learning(More)
We present results of a case study involving the design of Information Visualisation software to support work in the field of computational biology. The software supports research among scientists with very different technical backgrounds. In the study, the design process was enhanced through the use of sketching and design patterns. The results were that(More)

There is need for user-centred visualisation research to engage with the activity context, information needs, knowledge and abilities of target user-groups. With a focus on the work of journalists, we first argue for information-retrieval results visualisation as a suitable browsing framework for journalists' frequently ill-defined needs and high-recall(More)
