Entry Points to Visualization
This event is from 12:30 - 2:00pm.
Lunch is provided with RSVP.
I will discuss different entry points to visualization in terms of a nested model of visualization design that suggests evaluation approaches from different intellectual traditions at each of its four levels. I will frame the work that I and my students have done recently through this lens, including systems for visual document mining for investigative journalists (Overview), for interactive authoring of unstructured data (TimeLineCurator), and methods for fruitful collaboration between visualization researchers and domain experts (Design Study Methodology). I also suggest next steps for engaging further with visualization, including the MakeoverMonday, Dear Data, and Data Sketches projects.
Once you are inside the Forestry Science building walk to the rear (south-east) of the building by passing through the large open study area and up the stairs to the 2nd level student (“treetop”) lounge area. Turn left, pass through the double doors, and room 2300 will be immediately to your right.
