Visualization Theory: Putting the Pieces Together

  title={Visualization Theory: Putting the Pieces Together},
  author={Caroline Ziemkiewicz and Peter Kinnaird and Robert Kosara and Jock D. Mackinlay and Bernice E. Rogowitz},
Theory is an increasingly hot topic in visualization, expanding from its traditional origins in low-level perception and statistics to an ever-broader array of fields and subfields. Modern visualization theory includes color theory, visual cognition, visual grammars, interaction theory, visual analytics, information theory, and a growing but so far vaguely defined area of theory specific to visualization itself. In this panel, we bring together researchers who are studying visualization theory… 
Frontier of Information Visualization and Visual Analytics in 2016
This work conducts a cross-section survey by taking all the latest literatures as a whole, to obtain insights into the ecology of Information Visualization and Visual Analytics field in 2016.
Why Visualize? Untangling a Large Network of Arguments
A theoretical study to understand the underlying reasons of various arguments; their relationships; and their respective dependencies on tasks, users, and data, contributing the first comprehensive and systematic theoretical study of the arguments on visualization.
Pathways for Theoretical Advances in Visualization IEEE VIS 2016 Panel
There is little doubt that having a theoretic foundation will benefit the field of visualization, including its main subfields: information visualization, scientific visualization and visual
Empirical Evaluation of Data Visualizations by Non-Expert Users
Results on the evaluation of OGD visualizations from the field experiment conducted with non-expert users are reported and insights are discussed to inform designers and OGD providers.
Empirical Evaluation of Open Government Data Visualisations
It is found that geographic map visualizations were reported by users to provide the highest level of qualitative satisfaction, which correlates with the quantitative results requiring the shortest time to complete the tasks.

Theoretical Foundations of Information Visualization
Drawing on theories within associated disciplines, three different approaches to theoretical foundations of Information Visualization are presented: data-centric predictive theory, information theory, and scientific modeling.
Toward effective insight management in visual analytics systems
This paper first constructs a fact taxonomy that categorizes various facts in multidimensional data and captures their essential attributes through extensive literature survey and user studies, and proposes a conceptual framework of fact management based upon this factTaxonomy.
