Rolling the Dice: Multidimensional Visual Exploration using Scatterplot Matrix Navigation
tl;dr
We present a method based on scatterplots for visual exploration of multidimensional datasets using structured navigation in data dimension space, trading visual complexity for interactivity to reach a wider audience. Expand

Exploring the design space of composite visualization
tl;dr
We propose the notion of composite visualization views (CVVs) as a theoretical model that unifies the existing coordinated multiple views paradigm with other strategies for combining visual representations in the same geometrical space. Expand

  • 1 September 2008
tl;dr
We classify a total of 50 different techniques for occlusion management using our taxonomy and then go on to analyze the results, deriving a set of five orthogonal design patterns that characterize current work in the field. Expand

Toward Visualization for Games: Theory, Design Space, and Patterns
tl;dr
We use examples from both old and new games of different genres to explore the theory and design space of visualization and data collection in games, starting from SimCity in 1989 and moving to the Black Ops and Halo: Reach of present day. Expand
