Lunch talk by CSH Faculty member Johannes Sorger on Tuesday, November 7, at 2:00 pm, Room 101.
The design space in spatial data visualization can be heavily constrained when trying to choose an optimal mapping for attributes within the spatial context. To solve exploration and presentation tasks in the domain of multifaceted spatial data, special strategies have to be employed in order to integrate the essential information from the various data facets in an appropriate representation form with the spatial context. This talk explores visualization integration strategies for multifaceted spatial data. The first part of the talk describes the design space of integration in terms of two aspects: visual and functional integration. Visual integration describes how representations of the different data facets can be visually composed within a spatial context. Functional integration describes how events that have been triggered, for instance, through user interaction, can be coordinated across the various visually integrated representations. The second part of the talk describes contributions to the field of visualization in the context of concrete integration applications for exploration and presentation scenarios in the domains of lighting design and molecular visualization.
