Many critical decisions for individuals and organizations are often framed as preferential choices: the process of selecting the best option out of a set of alternatives. This paper presents a task-based empirical evaluation of ValueCharts, a set of interactive visualization techniques to support preferential choice. The design of our study is grounded in a(More)
In previous work, we proposed ValueCharts, a set of visualizations and interactive techniques to support the <i>inspection</i> of linear models of preferences. We now identify the need to consider the decision process in its entirety, and to redesign ValueCharts in order to support all phases of preferential choice. In this paper, we present our task-based(More)
Problem • There are many variables to consider when choosing a school • Everyone assigns weights these variables differently Solution • Visualization that allows users to select ranges for variables to reduce the number of schools • Interactive tool to allow users to weight variables differently and explore how this changes the rankings of schools Data set(More)

In decision theory the process of selecting the best option is called preferential choice. Many personal, business, and professional preferential choice decisions are made every day. In these situations, a decision maker must select the optimal option among multiple alternatives. In order to do this, she must be able to analyze a model of her preferences(More)
