      Patchett, John M.; Nouanesengsy, Boonthanome; Gisler, Galen; Ahrens, James; Hagen, Hans (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      Simulation scientists need to make decisions about what and how much output to produce. They must balance their ability to efficiently ingest the analysis with their ability to get more analysis. We study this balance as ...
    • Natural Language Interfaces for Data Analysis with Visualization: Considering What Has and Could Be Asked 

      Srinivasan, Arjun; Stasko, John T. (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      Natural language is emerging as a promising interaction paradigm for data analysis with visualization. Designing and implementing Natural Language Interfaces (NLIs) is a challenging task, however. In addition to being able ...

    • Spatial Interaction for the Post-Processing of 3D CFD Datasets 

      Niebling, Florian (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      Virtual Reality visualizations are often used for the evaluation of three-dimensional datasets generated by Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulations. Several different tracked devices, such as pointers or data gloves, ...
    • Hybrid-Treemap Layouting 

      Hahn, Sebastian; Döllner, Jürgen (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      This paper presents an approach for hybrid treemaps, which applies and combines several different layout principles within a single tree map in contrast to traditional treemap variants based on a single layout concept. To ...
    • Time-Ray Maps: Visualization of Spatial and Temporal Evolution of News Stories 

      Sheidin, Julia; Lanir, Joel; Bak, Peter; Kuflik, Tsvi (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      Time-Ray maps (see Figure 1) are designed to represent the temporal and spatial evolution of the reporting of a single news story. The visualization presents a compact representation that tells the story of the story in ...
    • On Establishing Visualization Requirements: A Case Study in Product Costing 

      Vosough, Zana; Groh, Rainer; Schulz, Hans-Jörg (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      The process of identifying visualization requirements is an important part of every visualization researcher's and practitioner's job. Nevertheless, the scientific literature is rather sparse on this topic, usually resorting ...
    • Readability and Precision in Pictorial Bar Charts 

      Skau, Drew; Kosara, Robert (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      Bar charts embellished with unique artistic styles, or made to look like real objects, are common in information graphics. Embellishments are typically considered detrimental to readability and accuracy, since they add ...
    • EuroVis 2017 - Short Papers: Frontmatter 

      Kozlikova, Barbora; Schreck, Tobias; Wischgoll, Thomas (Eurographics Association, 2017)
    • TexTile: A Pixel-Based Focus+Context Tool For Analyzing Variants Across Multiple Text Scales 

      Asokarajan, Bharathi; Etemadpour, Ronak; Abbas, June; Huskey, Sam; Weaver, Chris (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      Before the advent of printed texts, text duplication was done primarily by hand. Errors, alterations, and erasures were common and varied widely across different copies of the same text. Classics scholars seek to reconstruct ...
    • MVN-Reduce: Dimensionality Reduction for the Visual Analysis of Multivariate Networks 

      Martins, Rafael M.; Kruiger, J. F.; Minghim, Rosane; Telea, Alexandru C.; Kerren, Andreas (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
      The analysis of Multivariate Networks (MVNs) can be approached from two different perspectives: a multidimensional one, consisting of the nodes and their multiple attributes, or a relational one, consisting of the network's ...
    • ETK: An Evaluation Toolkit for Visualization User Studies 

      Turton, Terece L.; Berres, Anne S.; Rogers, David H.; Ahrens, James (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
