Open Access Star Glyph Insets for Overview Preservation of Multivariate Data

(PDF 4,048 kb)
Exploring vast spatial datasets often requires to drill down in order to inspect details, thus leading to a loss of contextual overview. An additional challenge rises if the visualized data is of multivariate nature, which we encounter in various domains such as healthcare, nutrition, crime reports, or social networks. Existing overview-plus-detail approaches do provide context but only limited support for multivariate data and often suffer from distortion. In this paper, we dynamically integrate star glyphs as insets into the spatial representation of multivariate data thus providing overview while inspecting details. Star glyphs pose an efficient and space saving method to visualize multivariate data, which qualifies them as integrated data representative. Furthermore, we demonstrate the usefulness of our approach in two use cases: The spatial exploration of multivariate crime data collected in San Francisco and the exploration of multivariate whisky data.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
