  • DYNEVI - DYnamic News Entity Visualization 

    Wanner, Franz; Schaefer, Matthias; Leitner-Fischer, Florian; Zintgraf, Fabian; Atkinson, M.; Keim, Daniel A. (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    Dynamic news entity visualization shows an implementation of visualizing news entity data to give an overview as well as to display emerging and vanishing news topics. We present a robust and dynamic visualization system ...
  • Interactive Visual Analysis of Families of Surfaces: An Application to Car Race and Car Setup 

    Matkovic, Kresimir; Gracanin, Denis; Splechtna, Reiner; Hauser, Helwig (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    Modern simulations often produce time series, or even functions of two variables as outputs for single attributes. Such complex data require carefully chosen and designed analysis procedures and the corresponding data ...
  • Visual Analytics in Software Maintenance: Challenges and Opportunities 

    Telea, Alexandru; Ersoy, Ozan; Voinea, Lucian (The Eurographics Association, 2010)

    As government are moving their focus from service provision to regulation, socio-economic issue are revealing more complex than ever to regulate. Traditional top-down and linear models for dealing with risks proved ...
  • Combining Details of the Chi-Square Goodness-of-Fit Test with Multivariate Data Visualization 

    May, Thorsten; Davey, James; Kohlhammer, Jörn (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    In this work, we combine KVMaps, a visualization technique presented in [May07] for the visualization of statistical aggregations in multivariate contingency tables, with the measures used for the statistical Chi-Square ...
  • Does Jason Bourne need Visual Analytics to catch the Jackal? 

    Bertone, Alessio; Lammarsch, Tim; Turic, Thomas; Aigner, Wolfgang; Miksch, Silvia (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    Visual Analytics is a relatively new field which tries to combine and intertwine visual and analytical methods in an interactive manner. Because of the complex structure of time, the application of visual analytics methods ...
  • Utilizing Treemaps for Multicriterial Search of 3D Objects 

    Petkos, Georgios; Darlagiannis, Vasilios; Moustakas, Konstantinos; Tzovaras, Dimitrios (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
