Massive amounts of data are available in today’s Digital Libraries (DLs). The challenge is to find relevant information quickly and easily, and to use it effectively. A standard way to access DLs is via a text-based query issued by a single user. Typically, the query results in a potentially very long ordered list of matching documents, that makes it hard for users to find what they are looking for. This paper presents iScape, a shared virtual desktop world dedicated to the collaborative… 

Figures from this paper

Interactive geographic visualization of very large GLAM data
TLDR
This thesis discusses the integration of Trove, a dataset with more than 60 million books aggregated from libraries throughout Australia, with GlamMap, and uses a relational database to optimize storage for retrieval of data.
Visual interfaces to digital libraries
TLDR
The workshop in 2002 continues the theme started at JCDL 2001 and draws on progress in the new field of Information Visualization, as well as addressing some of the issues addressed last year.
Visual Interfaces for Semantic Information Retrieval and Browsing

    Visualizing the Semantic Web
  • 2002
TLDR
Today, an unimaginable amount of human knowledge is available in digital libraries, repositories, on the Internet, etc, but the Web is extremely unstructured and heterogeneous, making the efficient and effective discovery of relevant data, services, or expertise rather difficult.
GlamMap: visualising library metadata
  • Betti
  • Computer Science
  • 2014
TLDR
GlamMap is presented, a visualisation tool that displays library metadata on an interactive, computer-generated geographic map that shows how geographic representations help librarians to perform tasks such as collection assessment and how geographic information helps researchers to identify important scientific resources.
GlamMap: visualizing library metadata
TLDR
GlamMap is presented, a visualisation tool that displays library metadata on an interactive, computer-generated geographic map that shows how geographic representations help librarians to perform tasks such as collection assessment and how geographic information helps researchers to identify important scientific resources.
Immersive Search: Interactive Information Retrieval in Three-Dimensional Space
TLDR
This work will observe how spatial arrangements of search results affect users' ability to find information in the post-query, visual search phase of the IIR process across quantitative and qualitative measures.
Pitfalls of information access with visualizations in remote collaborative analysis
TLDR
The success and discussion process of remote pairs trying to identify a serial killer in multiple crime cases is analyzed, finding that when each partner possessed all the evidence with visualizations, discussion flagged and pairs showed evidence of more confirmation bias.
A model of synchronous collaborative information visualization
  • G. Mark, Keri Carpenter, A. Kobsa
  • Computer Science
    Proceedings on Seventh International Conference on Information Visualization, 2003. IV 2003.
  • 2003
TLDR
It is proposed that system transparency can support some stages of the process, and that support is needed in the last stage to help users translate their findings from visual to written representations.
Sensemaking with shared visualizations: investigating the effects of visualizations in remote collaborative analysis
TLDR
The impact of network visualizations on collaborative problem solving is explored by examining three laboratory studies and suggests that visualization tools may prompt collaborations to be more systematic, but this depends on collaborators effectively using the visualize, finding relevant patterns within the visualization, and ultimately using these findings to direct their analysis.
Place metaphors in digimech learning environments
TLDR
The goal of this paper is to provide a characterization of place metaphors for the augmented environments of DMLE, which will serve as a background for future design of such environments for different educational goals.

TileBars: visualization of term distribution information in full text information access
TLDR
This paper argues for making use of text structure when retrieving from full text documents, and presents a visualization paradigm, called TileBars, that demonstrates the usefulness of explicit term distribution information in Boolean-type queries.
InfoCrystal: A visual tool for information retrieval
  • A. Spoerri
  • Computer Science
    Proceedings Visualization '93
  • 1993
TLDR
A novel representation that can be used as a visualization tool as well as a visual query language to help users search for information and enables users to explore and filter information in a flexible, dynamic and interactive way.
Scatter/Gather: a cluster-based approach to browsing large document collections
TLDR
This work presents a document browsing technique that employs document clustering as its primary operation, and presents fast (linear time) clustering algorithms which support this interactive browsing paradigm.
Trailblazing the literature of hypertext: author co-citation analysis (1989–1998)
TLDR
This work explores new ways of organising and accessing the vast amount of interrelated information in the literature of hypertext as represented by the ACM Hypertext conference series.
Visualization of search results: a comparative evaluation of text, 2D, and 3D interfaces
TLDR
Performance was best when the tool’s properties matched task demands; only under the right combination of task, user, and interface did 3D visualization result in performance comparable to functionally matched 2D and textual tools.
Extracting and visualizing semantic structures in retrieval results for browsing
TLDR
An approach that organizes retrieval results semantically and displays them spatially for browsing is introduced, implemented to visualize retrieval results from two different databases: the Science Citation Index Expanded and theDido Image Bank.
An introduction to latent semantic analysis
TLDR
The adequacy of LSA's reflection of human knowledge has been established in a variety of ways, for example, its scores overlap those of humans on standard vocabulary and subject matter tests; it mimics human word sorting and category judgments; it simulates word‐word and passage‐word lexical priming data.
Surround-screen projection-based virtual reality: the design and implementation of the CAVE
TLDR
This paper demonstrates that projection technology applied to virtual-reality goals achieves a system that matches the quality of workstation screens in terms of resolution, color, and flicker-free stereo, and demonstrates that this format helps reduce the effect of common tracking and system latency errors.
