This one for arranging papers


based [roughly] on chapter headings in IEEE InfoVis CONFERENCE proceedings

  • Sonification
  • Visualization Design Patterns (sub items in this section refer to programming patterns to support InfoVis, rather than the section of infovis)
    • Visualization Architecture Patterns
      • MVC
      • Reference Model (a tiered version of MVC)
      • PAC (another tiered architercture)
    • Interaction Patterns (User intent-based categories of interaction techniques)
      • Reconfigure: show me a different arrangement
      • Encode: show me a different representation
      • Filter: show me something conditionally
        • Filter
        • Dynamic Queries
        • Context-maintained Filter
