Pattern extraction algorithms are enabling insights into the ever-growing amount of today's datasets by translating reoccurring data properties into compact representations. Yet, a practical problem arises: With increasing data volumes and complexity also the number of patterns increases, leaving the analyst with a vast result space. Current algorithmic and especially visualization approaches often fail to answer central overview questions essential for a comprehensive understanding of pattern… Expand


Feedback-driven interactive exploration of large multidimensional data supported by visual classifier
This work introduces a framework for a feedback-driven view exploration, inspired by relevance feedback approaches used in Information Retrieval, and presents an instantiation of the framework for exploration of Scatter Plot Spaces based on visual features. Expand
Magnostics: Image-Based Search of Interesting Matrix Views for Guided Network Exploration
This work addresses the problem of retrieving potentially interesting matrix views to support the exploration of networks by evaluating 30 feature descriptors for matrix diagnostics and concludes with an informed set of six descriptors as most appropriate for Magnostics. Expand
Automated Analytical Methods to Support Visual Exploration of High-Dimensional Data
This paper proposes automatic analysis methods to extract potentially relevant visual structures from a set of candidate visualizations, and presents ranking measures for class-based as well as non-class-based scatterplots and parallel coordinates visualizations. Expand
Guiding the Exploration of Scatter Plot Data Using Motif-Based Interest Measures
Inspired by the well-known tf-idf approach from information retrieval, local and global quality measures based on certain frequency properties of the local motifs are computed and used to filter, rank and compare scatter plots and their incorporated motifs. Expand

A novel method is proposed for the visual analysis of HD data in which it is proposed that an interestingness-guided subspace search algorithm is employed to detect a candidate set of subspaces and, based on appropriately defined subspace similarity functions, this approach allows users to effectively compare and relate sub Spaces with respect to involved dimensions and clusters of objects.

Visual Exploration of Time‐Series Data with Shape Space Projections
This paper presents a novel approach to time‐series data visualization, namely creating multivariate data records out of short subsequences of the data and then using multivariate visualization methods to display and explore the data in the resulting shape space. Expand
Improving the visual analysis of high-dimensional datasets using quality measures
New quality measures for three popular visualization methods: Radviz, Pixel-Oriented Displays and Table Lenses are proposed and experiments show that these measures efficiently guide the visual analysis task. Expand
Pixnostics: Towards Measuring the Value of Visualization
Pixnostics, in analogy to Scagnostics, automatically analyses pixel images resulting from diverse parameter mappings and ranks them according to the potential value for the user, which allows a more effective and more efficient visual data analysis process. Expand
Pargnostics: Screen-Space Metrics for Parallel Coordinates
Pargnostics, parallel coordinates diagnostics, a model based on screen-space metrics that quantify the different visual structures that are observed in parallel coordinates is proposed, providing a way of automatically optimizing the display according to the user's preferences based on the metrics and model.

A Visual Analytics Approach to Multiscale Exploration of Environmental Time Series
The utility of the Visual Analytics approach is demonstrated in two scientific scenarios and how it allowed scientists to gain new insight into the dynamics of environmental systems is explained. Expand
