The use of novel displays and interaction resources to support immersive data visualization and improve analytical reasoning is a research trend in the information visualization community. [...] Key Method This two-step framework offers a simple approach to estimate the benefits of using an immersive 3D setup for a particular dataset. Here, the DR errors for a series of roll call voting datasets when using two or three dimensions are evaluated through an empirical task-based approach. The perception error and…Expand
VirtualDesk: A Comfortable and Efficient Immersive Information Visualization Approach
TLDR
This work implements and evaluates an alternative data exploration metaphor where the user remains seated and viewpoint change is only realisable through physical movements, and demonstrates that the prototype setup, named VirtualDesk, presents excellent results regarding user comfort and immersion, and performs equally or better in all analytical tasks.
The Impact of Immersion on Cluster Identification Tasks
TLDR
The study shows that an increased level of immersion can be a substantial benefit in the context of 3D data and cluster detection in VR environments.
Evaluating an Immersive Space-Time Cube Geovisualization for Intuitive Trajectory Data Exploration
TLDR
The immersive version of the Space-Time Cube received higher usability scores, much higher user preference, and was rated to have a lower mental workload, without causing participants discomfort in 25-minute-long VR sessions.
EXPLORING CULTURAL HERITAGE COLLECTIONS IN IMMERSIVE ANALYTICS: CHALLENGES, BENEFITS, AND A CASE STUDY USING VIRTUAL REALITY
TLDR
The initial user study suggests that using an immersive VR offers benefits for the exploration task for the viewer and the user experience provided by VaRt-DataExplorer has received high ratings.
Breaking the Curse of Visual Analytics: Accommodating Virtual Reality in the Visualization Pipeline
TLDR
This paper demonstrates how Virtual Reality (VR) can help to verify the correspondence of both worlds in the context of Information Visualization (InfoVis) and Visual Analytics (VA) to overcome the guarded stance of VR in InfoVis and VA.
Combining VR Visualization and Sonification for Immersive Exploration of Urban Noise Standards
TLDR
This work presents a virtual reality application that seeks to offer an audiovisual glimpse into the background workings of one of these standards, by employing a multisensory, immersive analytics approach that allows users to interactively explore and listen to an approximate rendering of the data in the same environment that the noise simulation occurs in.
Immersive Analytics of Multidimensional Volumetric Data
TLDR
Novel immersive visualization and interaction techniques using Virtual Reality (VR) were developed in this thesis to investigate highly complex, heterogeneous material systems and present a novel technique called "Model in Miniature" for an effective and interactive exploration and visual analysis of fiber characteristics.
Visualizing Movement Trajectories in an Immersive Space-Time Cube
The ever-growing amount of human movement data challenges us to develop new visualization techniques and to revisit existing ones with different perspectives. Traditional 2D movement visualizations
Scaptics and Highlight-Planes: Immersive Interaction Techniques for Finding Occluded Features in 3D Scatterplots
TLDR
This work proposes two techniques that leverage the immersive aspects of VR: first, a density-based haptic vibration technique (Scaptics) which provides feedback through the controller; and second, an adaptation of a cutting plane for 3D scatterplots (Highlight-Plane).
Comparing and Combining Virtual Hand and Virtual Ray Pointer Interactions for Data Manipulation in Immersive Analytics
In this work, we evaluate two standard interaction techniques for Immersive Analytics environments: virtual hands, with actions such as grabbing and stretching, and virtual ray pointers, with actions

Immersive Analytics of Dimensionally-Reduced Data Scatterplots
In this work, we evaluate the use of an HMD-based Immersive Analytics approach to explore multidimensional data. Our main hypothesis is that the benefits obtained, such as a more natural interaction
Immersive and collaborative data visualization using virtual reality platforms
TLDR
Immersion provides benefits beyond the traditional “desktop” visualization tools: it leads to a demonstrably better perception of a datascape geometry, more intuitive data understanding, and a better retention of the perceived relationships in the data.
Perspectives for using virtual reality to extend visual data mining in information visualization
TLDR
This paper shows how a CAVE-like2 environment can allow the study of multi-dimensional datasets while keeping multiple 2D representations available, using genome comparisons as a usecase.
Experiments in the Use of Immersion for Information Visualization
TLDR
A moderate trend indicating that immersion decreases the time needed to perform a spatial information gathering task is observed, indicating that this area of research can be applied immediately to the applications currently being developed.
The Effects of Immersion on 3D Information Visualization
TLDR
It is hypothesized that a high degree of FOR will result in increased task performance and user satisfaction when visualizing data represented by scatter and surface plots, but the effects of these components would be greater in the scatter plots than surface plots.
A Study of Layout, Rendering, and Interaction Methods for Immersive Graph Visualization
Information visualization has traditionally limited itself to 2D representations, primarily due to the prevalence of 2D displays and report formats. However, there has been a recent surge in
New insights into the suitability of the third dimension for visualizing multivariate/multidimensional data: A study based on loss of quality quantification
TLDR
A way to demonstrate the underlying superiority of three-dimensional representation, with respect to two-dimensional, representation is proposed, based on the inevitable quality degradation produced when reducing the data dimensionality.
The benefits of statistical visualization in an immersive environment
TLDR
The experiment results showed an improvement in participants' ability to perform structure detection tasks in the C2 to their performance in thedesktop environment, however, participants were more comfortable with the interaction tools in the desktop system.
Exploring the Benefits of Immersion in Abstract Information Visualization
The benefits of immersion with regard to information visualization applications have rarely been explored. In this paper, we describe a user study designed to explore a variety of information
Immersive Collaborative Analysis of Network Connectivity: CAVE-style or Head-Mounted Display?
TLDR
Significant differences are found between the two conditions in task completion time and the physical movements of the participants within the space: participants using the HMD were faster while the CAVE2 condition introduced an asymmetry in movement between collaborators.
