User-centered tagging systems such as Flickr and del.icio.us have triggered diverse responses, both within and outside the community of information studies, because they(More)
A wide variety of real-world applications generate massive high dimensional categorical datasets. These datasets contain categorical variables whose values comprise a set of discrete categories. Visually exploring these datasets for insights is of great interest and importance. However, their discrete nature often confounds the direct application of(More)
