VIS Tutorials and the Industry and Government Experiences Track

Robert Kosara reminds us that the IEEE VIS deadline for tutorials is coming up soon, and they’re still looking for reviewers.  In addition, the new “Industry and Government Experience” track looks particularly interesting. Posters should present case studies of success, failure, experimentation, design, development, methodology, best practice lessons and other topics relevant to a commercial […]

Visualization is Growing Up

Robert Kosara, EagerEyes, has posted his VisWeek roundup.  He takes a bit of a different view than others, focusing on the work this year in validation & verification of visualization techniques, like the work done by Michelle Borkin in medical visualizations: Michelle Borkin presented fascinating work on the use of colormaps in the diagnosis of […]

The Most Interesting Papers at the Infovis Conference – VisWeek 2011

Kim Rees has a great article on many of the papers at VisWeek, focusing mostly on the ones in the InfoVis track. While many of the research was focused on trying to “do something better,” there was one paper that presented a novel, new type of data visualization. GestaltLines (PDF) by Ulrik Brandes and Nick […]


IEEE Visweek 2011 Underway

  IEEE VisWeek 2011 is underway up in Rhode Island, with all the usual players onsite and tweeting, blogging, and updating as fast as their 3G and WiFi connections will allow.  Early indications show it going well (aside from a common cough/cold pervading many).  Here’s some early reports and folks to watch: “Telling Stories with […]

Kitware in VES: Development in Iterations

If you happen to be in Rhode Island this week for IEEE VisWeek, flag down a Kitware developer and check out their latest foray into OpenGL ES 2.0 support with “VES”.  Already at the core of their iPad app “KiwiViewer”, they’ve been busily working on it adding lots of features. And so, here we are, […]


Paper: Privacy-Preserving Visualization

Robert Kosara and his student Aritra Dasgupta are presenting a paper next week at InfoVis on something most people would consider contrary to classic Vis: How to obscure information. The point of visualization is usually to reveal as much of the structure of a dataset as possible. But what if the data is sensitive or […]

Research: GeneaQuilts – A System for Exploring Large Genealogies

Infosthetics brings us a new method of visualizing large genealogy databases that was presented at Visweek this year.  The original paper (download, view online) presents a method that can map thousands of individuals into a diagonal matrix view, with patterns indicating many interesting family structures. Genealogies are represented in the form of a layered, diagonally-filled […]

Hurricane Tracking Tool wins IEEE Discovery Award

City University London won a Discovery Award at the recent IEEE VisWeek conference for their Hurricane Tracking Visualization tool.  A joint effort between climate scientists at NCAR and visualization esperts at giCentre, the work was to find a way to parse the massive database of hurricane tracks for the last several hundred years. Through the […]
