ISS’17 , October 17–20, 2017, Brighton, UK. Abstract In our research on post-tabletop multi-tablet sensemaking, we found that users working with tablets can be equally effective as those working with a large tabletop [26]. However, they also can have difficulties with using multiple tablets in parallel for multiple coordinated views and…

Is Two Enough?: ! Studying Benefits, Barriers, and Biases of Multi-Tablet Use for Collaborative Visualization

A quantitative and qualitative analysis revealed a ``legacy bias' that introduced barriers for using more tablets and reduced the overall benefit of multi-device visualization.

GraSp: Combining Spatially‐aware Mobile Devices and a Display Wall for Graph Visualization and Interaction

This paper investigates how spatially‐aware mobile displays and a large display wall can be coupled to support graph visualization and interaction, and devised and implemented a comprehensive interaction repertoire that supports basic and advanced graph exploration and manipulation tasks.

When Tablets meet Tabletops: The Effect of Tabletop Size on Around-the-Table Collaboration with Personal Tablets

To the own surprise, it is found that larger tabletops do not necessarily improve collaboration or sensemaking results, because they can divert users' attention away from their collaborators and towards the shared display.

Co-Located Collaborative Visual Analytics around a Tabletop Display

An exploratory study of a system designed to support collaborative visual analysis tasks on a digital tabletop display and identifies eight types of collaboration styles that can be used to identify how closely people work together while problem solving.

Beyond Mouse and Keyboard: Expanding Design Considerations for Information Visualization Interactions

This discussion of InfoVis-specific interaction design considerations helps to identify a series of underexplored attributes of interaction that can lead to new, more “natural,” interaction techniques for InfoVis.

TouchPivot: Blending WIMP & Post-WIMP Interfaces for Data Exploration on Tablet Devices

TouchPivot is presented, a novel interface that assists visual data exploration on tablet devices that supports data transformations, such as pivoting and filtering, with simple pen and touch interactions, and facilitates understanding of the transformations through tight coupling between a data table and visualization.

RAMPARTS: Supporting Sensemaking with Spatially-Aware Mobile Interactions

It is concluded that designing for ad-hoc colocated sensemaking on mobile devices could benefit from spatial awareness, and spatial awareness could be used to identify relevant information, support diverse alignment styles for visual comparison, and enable alternative rhythms of sensemaking.

Spatially-aware or Spatially-agnostic?: Elicitation and Evaluation of User-Defined Cross-Device Interactions

The results indicate that spatially-aware techniques are preferred by users and can decrease mental demand, effort, and frustration, but only when they are designed with great care.

Fluid interaction for information visualization

This article collects examples of visualizations with ‘best-in-class’ interaction and uses them to extract practical design guidelines for future designers and researchers to address the issue of interaction in visualization.

HuddleLamp: Spatially-Aware Mobile Displays for Ad-hoc Around-the-Table Collaboration

A novel hybrid sensing approach that uses RGB and depth data to increase tracking quality and a technical evaluation of its capabilities and limitations is contributed.
