The Science of Interaction
TLDR
The relationship between interaction and cognition is explored and recent exemplars of visual analytics research that have made substantive progress toward the goals of a true science of interaction are identified. Expand
Dis-function: Learning distance functions interactively
TLDR
It is illustrated empirically that with only a few iterations of interaction and optimization, a user can achieve a scatterplot view and its corresponding distance function that reflect the user's knowledge of the data. Expand
iPCA: An Interactive System for PCA‐based Visual Analytics
TLDR
This work has developed a system that visualizes the results of principal component analysis using multiple coordinated views and a rich set of user interactions to support analysis of multivariate datasets through extensive interaction with the PCA output. Expand
Ranking Visualizations of Correlation Using Weber's Law
TLDR
A large scale crowdsourced experiment is conducted to investigate whether the perception of correlation in nine commonly used visualizations can be modeled using Weber's law, establishing that for all tested visualizations, the precision of correlation judgment could be modeled by Weber'sLaw. Expand
Recovering Reasoning Processes from User Interactions
TLDR
By examining analysts' interaction logs, the authors identified the analysts' strategies, methods, and findings when using a financial VA tool. Expand
How locus of control influences compatibility with visualization style
TLDR
A personality trait known as “locus of control,” which represents a person's tendency to see themselves as controlled by or in control of external events is focused on, to isolate variables of the visualization design and demonstrate that there is indeed a correlation between the two. Expand
Defining Insight for Visual Analytics
TLDR
The idea that visualization should lead to insight seems logical, but researchers in the community have been slow to build on the concept because insight is difficult to define. Expand
WireVis: Visualization of Categorical, Time-Varying Data From Financial Transactions
TLDR
This paper presents a set of coordinated visualizations based on identifying specific keywords within the wire transactions which demonstrate relationships among keywords and accounts over time and introduces a search-by-example technique which extracts accounts that show similar transaction patterns. Expand
Using fNIRS brain sensing to evaluate information visualization interfaces
TLDR
It is shown how brain sensing can lend insight to the evaluation of visual interfaces and establish a role for fNIRS in visualization and the classic comparison of bar graphs and pie charts is used to test the viability of fNirS for measuring the impact of a visual design on the brain. Expand
Dynamic reduction of query result sets for interactive visualizaton
TLDR
The design and implementation of ScalaR are presented, and results for an example application, displaying satellite imagery data stored in SciDB as the back-end DBMS are shown. Expand
