Researchers have made significant progress in disciplines such as scientific and information visualization, statistically based exploratory and confirmatory analysis, data and knowledge representations, and perceptual and cognitive sciences. Although some research is being done in this area, the pace at which new technologies and technical talents are(More)
The 2012 Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST) Challenge posed two challenge problems for participants to solve using a combination of visual analytics software and their own analytic reasoning abilities. Challenge 1 (C1) involved visualizing the network health of the fictitious Bank of Money to provide situation awareness and identify emerging(More)
1 The 6 th Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST) Challenge posed three related mini-challenges for participants to solve using a combination of visual analytics software and their own analytic reasoning abilities. Teams could solve one, two or all three mini-challenges and assess the overall situation to enter the Grand Challenge. Mini-challenge(More)
—Visual data analysis is composed of a collection of cognitive actions and tasks to decompose, internalize, and recombine data to produce knowledge and insight. Visual analytic tools provide interactive visual interfaces to data to support discovery and sensemaking tasks, including forming hypotheses, asking questions, and evaluating and organizing(More)
This paper is a product of a workshop on the Future of Visual Analytics, held in Washington, DC on 4 March 2009. Workshop attendees included representatives from the visual analytics research community across government, industry and academia. The goal of the workshop, and the resulting papers, was to reflect on the first 5 years of the visual analytics(More)
The rise of Big Data has influenced the design and technical implementation of visual analytic tools required to handle the increased volumes, velocities, and varieties of data. This has required a set of data management and computational advancements to allow us to store and compute on such datasets. However, as the ultimate goal of visual analytic(More)
