2005-08-26: Special Section on the IEEE InfoVis conference in "IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics"
Matthew O. Ward and Tamara Munzner edited a special section on the IEEE InfoVis conference 2004 in Vol. 11, Nr. 4 (July/August 2005) of the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics. The special section contains three expanded versions of papers presented at InfoVis 2004:
- Knowledge Precepts for Design and Evaluation of Information Visualizations
by Robert A. Amar and John T. Stasko
Winner of the InfoVis 2004 Best Paper Award
Analyzes existing tools along a framework which shows that current visualization tools often fail because they concentrate mostly on presenting data, as opposed to supporting analysis.
- An Insight-Based Methodology for Evaluating Bioinformatics Visualizations
by Purvi Saraiya, Chris North, and Karen Duca
Presents a novel method for assessing and comparing the effectiveness of visualization tools, namely, the number and type of insights discovered.
- Topological Fisheye Views for Visualizing Large Graphs
by Emden R. Gansner, Yehuda Koren, and Stephen North
Describes a multiresolution technique for the effective and efficient visualization of graphs with thousands or even millions of nodes.
