Direct manipulation of visualizations is a powerful technique for performing exploratory data operations such as navigation, aggregation, and filtering. Its immediacy facilitates rapid, incremental, and reversible forays into the data. However it does not provide for reuse or modification of exploration sessions. This paper describes a visual query(More)
Exploratory data analysis is a process of sifting through data in search of interesting information or patterns. Analysts’ current tools for exploring data include database management systems, statistical analysis packages, data mining tools, visualization tools, and report generators. Since the exploration process seeks the unexpected in a data-driven(More)
Backtracking and investigating alternative scenarios are a integral parts of exploratory data analysis. Yet today's interfaces cannot represent alternative exploration paths as a branching history, forcing the user to recognize conceptual branch points in a linear history. Further, the interface can only show information from one state at a time, forcing(More)
This paper is organized in three parts. The first part details some of the lower level shot classification work, the second part describes the ‘manual’ retrieval systems while the last section details the interactive retrieval system for the Carnegie Mellon University TREC Video Retrieval Track runs. The description of the data can be found elsewhere in the(More)
The ability to quickly explore and compare multiple scenarios is an important component of exploratory data analysis. Yet today's interfaces cannot represent alternative exploration paths as a branching history, forcing the user to recognize conceptual branch points in a linear history. Further, the interface can only show information from one state at a(More)
