Visual Designs for Binned Aggregation of Multi-Class Scatterplots

  title={Visual Designs for Binned Aggregation of Multi-Class Scatterplots},
  author={Florian Heimerl and Chih-Ching Chang and Alper Sarikaya and Michael Gleicher},
Point sets in 2D with multiple classes are a common type of data. A canonical visualization design for them are scatterplots, which do not scale to large collections of points. For these larger data sets, binned aggregation (or binning) is often used to summarize the data, with many possible design alternatives for creating effective visual representations of these summaries. There are a wide range of designs to show summaries of 2D multi-class point data, each capable of supporting different…

Construct boundaries and place labels for multi-class scatterplots

A set of methods that form a three-step framework to overcome readability and scalability issues with existing methods and enable the boundary compact, readable, and controllable, and can find an ideal position that matches the human visual preference for each label.

Kyrix-S: Authoring Scalable Scatterplot Visualizations of Big Data

Kyrix-S derives a declarative grammar that enables specification of a variety of SSVs in a few tens of lines of code, based on an existing survey of scatterplot tasks and designs, and is supported by a distributed layout algorithm which automatically places visual marks onto zoom levels.

Honeycomb Plots: Visual Enhancements for Hexagonal Maps

Novel techniques for enhancing hexplots with spatialization cues while avoiding common disadvantages of three-dimensional visualizations are presented and a novel visual encoding that conveys information about the data distributions or trends within individual tiles is introduced.

Micro diagrams: visualization of categorical point data from location-based social media

A new visualization method for categorical point data, called “Micro Diagrams”, is developed, which uses small diagrams to show the percentages of categories and the spatial distribution.

Comparative Layouts Revisited: Design Space, Guidelines, and Future Directions

A systematic review on three comparative layouts-juxtaposition, superposition, and explicit-encoding-which are information visualization (InfoVis) layouts designed to support comparison tasks, to distill the results from previous studies into a consistent and reusable framework.

Dual Space Coupling Model Guided Overlap-Free Scatterplot

A dual space coupling model is proposed in this paper to represent the complex bilateral relationship between data space and visual space theoretically and analytically and can ensure complete and accurate information transfer between the two spaces, maintaining consistency between the newly created scatterplot and the original data distribution on global and local features.

NetScatter: Visual analytics of multivariate time series with a hybrid of dynamic and static variable relationships

NetScatter is presented, a visual analytic approach to characterizing changes of pairwise relationships in a high-dimensional time series that combines static perspectives of two variables in multi-variate time series into a single representation by comparing all data instances over two different time steps.

Master thesis User-centric geospatial analytics and visualization of catastrophe risk portfolio using the example of the insurance industry

A visualization strategy with multi-resolution global hexagon layers is proposed for supporting users to explore the large location datasets and assisting their decision-making process and the usability of the visualization strategy is evaluated via testing the application.

Master thesis User-centric geospatial analytics and visualization of catastrophe risk portfolio using the example of the insurance industry

A visualization strategy with multi-resolution global hexagon layers is proposed for supporting users to explore the large location datasets and assisting their decision-making process and verified the effectiveness of proposed visualization strategy into the insurance industry.

Trinary Tools for Continuously Valued Binary Classifiers



Variable Binned Scatter Plots

Variable binned scatter plots are proposed to allow the visualization of large amounts of data without overlapping to solve real-world problems in the areas of credit card fraud and data center energy consumption to visualize their data distributions and cause-effect relationships among multiple attributes.

Visual Abstraction and Exploration of Multi-class Scatterplots

A new visual abstraction scheme is presented that employs a hierarchical multi-class sampling technique to show a feature-preserving simplification and to enhance the density contrast, the colors of multiple classes are optimized by taking the multi- class point distributions into account.

Task-driven evaluation of aggregation in time series visualization

This paper combines prior results from perceptual science and graphical perception to suggest a set of design variables that influence performance on various aggregate comparison tasks, and describes how choices in these variables can lead to designs that are matched to particular tasks.

Design Study of LineSets, a Novel Set Visualization Technique

This paper presents a design study of a novel set visual representation, LineSets, consisting of a curve connecting all of the set's elements, and demonstrates that the generated curves do as well as human-drawn ones.

Visual comparison for information visualization

This paper proposes a general taxonomy of visual designs for comparison that groups designs into three basic categories, which can be combined, and provides a survey of work in information visualization related to comparison.

Splatterplots: Overcoming Overdraw in Scatter Plots

It is shown how Splatterplots can be an effective alternative to traditional methods of displaying scatter data communicating data trends, outliers, and data set relationships much like traditional scatter plots, but scaling to data sets of higher density and up to millions of points on the screen.

A Declarative Rendering Model for Multiclass Density Maps

A declarative model is introduced—a simple yet expressive JSON grammar associated with visual semantics—that specifies a wide design space of visualizations for multiclass density maps that can be efficiently implemented in visualization front-ends such as modern web browsers.

Generalized Scatter Plots

The generalized scatter plot technique is proposed, which allows an overlap-free representation of large data sets to fit entirely into the display, and an optimization function that takes overlap and distortion of the visualization into acccount is identified.

Glyph-based Visualization: Foundations, Design Guidelines, Techniques and Applications

This report fills several major gaps in the literature, drawing the link between the fundamental concepts in semiotics and the broad spectrum of glyph-based visualization, reviewing existing design guidelines and implementation techniques, and surveying the use of glyphs in many applications.

A Design Space of Visualization Tasks

The proposed design space consists of five design dimensions that characterize the main aspects of tasks and that have so far been distributed across different task descriptions and is exemplified by applying its design space in the domain of climate impact research.
