Connect, Collaborate, Analyze : From Individual Work to Collaborative Visual Analytic (FITOC)
|Project Code:||ANR- 11-JS02-003|
|Researchers:||Petra Isenberg (PI), Pierre Dragicevic, Jean-Daniel Fekete, Wesley Willett, Pascal Goffin|
|Research Themes:||Information Visualization, Visual Analytics, Computer-Supported Cooperative Work, Human-Computer Interaction|
This project focuses on visualization research and the notion of data analysis as a social process. Currently, a large amount of data analysis work is conducted by individuals but many activities require the switch to collaborative data analysis with others. The goal of this project is to research how the transition between individual and collaborative work can best be supported using visualization applications.
We will work on several different types of solutions to address the general problem described above. We have begun to investigate different interaction and visualization solutions in the space and will work on an integration into a more common environment later on.
Tangibles to support transition between individual and collaborative work
|We were working on understanding how tangibles can be used to ease the transition between individual and collaborative work. This project focused on tangibles to support faceted search/browsing. More detail on this project can be found on the Stackables project page|
Utilizing perception to support merging individual visual representations
|We are working on methods that the merging of data from multiple people to be viewed at multiple distances. This work is currently under submission. Stay tuned for updates. More detail on this project can be found on the hybrid image visualization project page|
Sharing notes and data visualizations
A large chunk of the upcoming research will be in the realm of note-taking for data analysis. As this work is ongoing, updates will follow later.
Both the PhD and the engineering position for this project have been filled.
