This paper introduces a number of refinements to the Parallel Coordinates visualisation metaphor for multi-dimensional data. Firstly, the traditional set of poly-lines are replaced with a collection of smooth curves across the attribute axes, allowing individual data elements to be traced under certain limitations; normally impossible due to the 'crossing… (More)
This short paper describes the presentation model used by the Teallach model-based user-interface development environment. Teallach's presentation model provides both abstract and concrete interactors, which are first-class objects that may be freely intermixed when building a user-interface. An example is provided showing this approach in use.
Model-based user interface development environments show promise for improving the productivity of user interface developers, and possibly for improving the quality of developed interfaces. While model-based techniques have previously been applied to the area of database interfaces, they have not been speci®cally targeted at the important area of object… (More)
This article summarises the current state of research into multiple tree visualisations. It discusses the spectrum of current representation techniques used on single trees, pairs of trees and finally multiple trees, in order to identify which representations are best suited to particular tasks and to find gaps in the representation space, in which… (More)
Visualisations have previously combined linking and brushing operations successfully. However, none to our knowledge have combined linking and focussing techniques. We describe the motivation behind developing such a technique, and show how our visualisation takes advantage of inherent links in a set of multiple overlapping hierarchies to build a mechanism… (More)
Model-based systems provide methods for supporting the systematic and efficient development of application interfaces. This paper examines how model-based technologies can be exploited to develop user interfaces to databases. To this end five model-based systems, namely Adept, HUMANOID, Mastermind, TADEUS and DRIVE are discussed through the use of a… (More)
