Interactive Poster: Table-based Visualization and Interaction for Bipartite Graphs


The visualization of bipartite graphs has only recently gained some interest, as more and more application fields begin to use this spe-cial graph class as a natural way to encode their data. We present a table-based approach for the visualization of real world bipartite graphs, which may be large in size and contain a multitude of at-tributes. To perform complex selections within such graph data, we introduce a new script-based brushing mechanism which integrates naturally with the tabular graph representation.

    Conference Paper: Generalized Fisheye Views
    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
    ABSTRACT: In many contexts, humans often represent their own “neighborhood” in great detail, yet only major landmarks further away. This suggests that such views (“fisheye views”) might be useful for the computer display of large information structures like programs, data bases, online text, etc. This paper explores fisheye views presenting, in turn, naturalistic studies, a general formalism, a specific instantiation, a resulting computer program, example displays and an evaluation

    ABSTRACT: Interactive selection is a critical component in exploratory visualization, allowing users to isolate subsets of the displayed information for highlighting, deleting, analysis, or focussed investigation. Brushing, a popular method for implementing the selection process, has traditionally been performed in either screen space or data space. In this paper, we introduce the concept of a structure-based brush, which can be used to perform selection in hierarchically structured data sets. Our structure-based brush allows users to navigate hierarchies by specifying focal extents and level-of-detail on a visual representation of the structure. Proximity-based coloring, which maps similar colors to data that are closely related within the structure, helps convey both structural relationships and anomalies. We describe the design and implementation of our structure-based brushing tool. We also validate its usefulness using two distinct hierarchical visualization techniques, namely hierarchical ...

    ABSTRACT: We present a new visualization, called the Table Lens, for visualizing and making sense of large tables. The visualization uses a focus context (fisheye) technique that works effectively on tabular information because it allows display of crucial label information and multiple distal focal areas. In addition, a graphical mapping scheme for depicting table contents has been developed for the most widespread kind of tables, the cases-by-variables table. The Table Lens fuses symbolic and graphical representations into a single coherent view that can be fluidly adjusted by the user. This fusion and interactivity enables an extremely rich and natural style of direct manipulation exploratory data analysis.
