Information Visualization

Communicate information
through g
raphical
representation of data







Popular in statistics, economy, industry

Visually Effective Information Visualization for Large Data

Parallel Coordinates

Axes are placed parallel and a data point
is displayed as

a polyline

[Inselberg1990]


Multiple dimen
-

sions displayed

at once

1.
Speed

2.
Occlusion

3.
Aggregation

Solution


Visual Abstraction



a simpler graphical representation
that preserves important information

[Hadwiger2003]

Matej Novotný

Visually Effective Information Visualization for Large Data

Clustering And Binning



used to provide abstract information



produce groups of similar samples



original data

clustering

binning

Visual Representation



g
roups of lines

-

colored areas



colors
-

diverse yet equally bright


[brewer2003]



transparency improves


overlapping



ordering before rendering


big areas first, small areas

on top of them

texture


shape of cluster


avoids misinterpretation




opacity value


Population of cluster


Density of cluster

Results


speed problem

Response time :


380.000 lines



3 sec




260 quads


< 0.1 sec

Visually Effective Information Visualization for Large Data

Results


occlusion problem

Fluid dynamics
-

particles with low
turbulency have low dissipation rate

15

Visually Effective Information Visualization for Large Data

Results


aggregation problem

Most of the data found to be
aggregated in a thin area.

Conclusions And Future Work



Visual abstraction enhances cluttered
and dense displays



Promising results for the price of a
simple pre
-
processing



Additional research in large data
clustering possible



The concept can be extended to
many other infovis techniques
