Z: Why vis?

Node: Visualizations are open for interaction

Descriptor Interaction
Argumentative standpoint Interplay
Description

Visualization enables interactive manipulation. Subjects can physically modify a visualization. This can be annotation, folding the piece of paper the visualization is printed on, or any kind of interaction with a digital visualization on a computer screen.

Streeb, Dirk: M. Chen et al. [2011]: From Data Analysis and Visualization to Causality Discovery doi:10.1109/MC.2011.313 - 20.03.18 12:55 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 85 algorithms alone cannot encode an adequate amount of human knowledge a bout relevant concepts, facts, and contexts—hence the need for interaction;
Streeb, Dirk: J. S. Yi et al. [2007]: Toward a Deeper Understanding of the Role of Interaction in Information Visualization doi:10.1109/TVCG.2007.70515 - 20.03.18 09:43 (+) Positive Basically all of the publication sec. 1 While static images clearly have analytic and expressive value, their usefulness becomes more limited as the data set that they represent grows larger with more variables. Actually, even with a static image such as a poster, a user (or a reader) will often perform several interactions.
Streeb, Dirk: J. T. Stasko [2014]: Value-Driven Evaluation of Visualizations doi:10.1145/2669557.2669579 - 19.03.18 10:16 (+) Positive One or more sections sec. 4 As a person considers aspects of the data and forms new schemas and models of the data’s meaning, interaction allows the person to change perspective and address new inquiries that arise.
Streeb, Dirk: J. T. Stasko [2014]: Value-Driven Evaluation of Visualizations doi:10.1145/2669557.2669579 - 19.03.18 10:16 (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 3 Rather than have to learn query languages and tools and issue syntactic requests, a person merely interacts with an interface using direct manipulation to select visual items or update the view to show the desired information.
Streeb, Dirk: L. J. Trevena et al. [2013]: Presenting Quantitative Information about Decision Outcomes: A Risk Communication Primer for Patient Decision Aid Developers doi:10.1186/1472-6947-13-S2-S7 - 19.03.18 07:22 (+-) Ambivalent One or more subsections p. 10 However, evidence is lacking to determine whether the techniques allowed by new technologies provide a net positive experience. Preliminary evidence suggests that, unless the motion cues reinforce the most critical gist message (e.g., the accumulation of risk over time), there remains significant risk that interactive or animated formats may degrade knowledge versus evidence-based static formats.
Streeb, Dirk: W. Aigner [2011]: Understanding the Role and Value of Interaction: First Steps isbn:978-3-905673-82-1 - 18.03.18 12:33 (+) Positive Basically all of the publication sec. 1 From the perspective of media, we might say that a paper map is static. But what if we cut and fold the paper map? Isn’t that also interaction?
Streeb, Dirk: D. Kirsh [2010]: Thinking with External Representations doi:10.1007/s00146-010-0272-8 - 12.03.18 12:35 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 446 They [external representations] can be operated on in different ways; they can be manually duplicated, and rearranged.
Streeb, Dirk: D. Kirsh [2010]: Thinking with External Representations doi:10.1007/s00146-010-0272-8 - 12.03.18 12:35 (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 442 …access to new operators—you can do something outside that you cannot inside…
Streeb, Dirk: A. Endert et al. [2014]: The Human is the Loop: New Directions for Visual Analytics doi:10.1007/s10844-014-0304-9 - 12.03.18 09:57 (+) Positive Basically all of the publication p. 431 To strengthen this process, user interactions can be designed to occur directly within the visual representation of the data, instead of directly on model parameters.
Streeb, Dirk: P. Parsons et al. [2015]: Interactivity in Visual Analytics: Use of Conceptual Frameworks to Support Human-Centered Design of a Decision-Support Tool doi:10.1109/HICSS.2015.138 - 12.03.18 09:19 (+) Positive Basically all of the publication
Streeb, Dirk: D. A. Keim et al. [2010]: Mastering the Information Age Solving Problems with Visual Analytics isbn:978-3-905673-77-7 - 10.03.18 14:06 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 11 Visualisations allow the analysts to interact with the automatic methods by modifying parameters or selecting other analysis algorithms.
Streeb, Dirk: J. J. Thomas [2005]: Illuminating the Path: The Research and Development Agenda for Visual Analytics isbn:0-7695-2323-4 - 08.03.18 09:07 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 30 Interaction techniques are required to support the dialogue between the analyst and the data.
Streeb, Dirk: M. Chen and A. Golan [2016]: What May Visualization Processes Optimize? doi:10.1109/TVCG.2015.2513410 - 04.03.18 10:31 (+) Positive One or more subsections sec. 5.1 In data analysis and visualization, human-computer interaction plays a significant role in breaking the condition of the data processing inequality. It enables human analysts to introduce “soft” information and knowledge into such a process.
Streeb, Dirk: M. Hegarty [2011]: The Cognitive Science of Visual-Spatial Displays: Implications for Design doi:10.1111/j.1756-8765.2011.01150.x - 02.03.18 13:46 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 449 They also include interactive displays that allow the user to add or subtract variables displayed on a graph or map, rotate the display to view an object or three-dimensional data set from different perspectives, filter out task-irrelevant information, or zoom into a data set to view some aspect of the data in more detail
Streeb, Dirk: Z. Liu, N. J. Nersessian and J. T. Stasko [2008]: Distributed Cognition as a Theoretical Framework for Information Visualization doi:10.1109/TVCG.2008.121 - 02.03.18 08:41 (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 2 Hutchins puts it this way: “tools permit us to transform difficult tasks into ones that can be done by pattern matching, by the manipulation of simple physical systems, or by mental simulations of manipulations of simple physical systems. Tools are useful precisely because the cognitive processes required to manipulate them are not the computational processes accomplished by their manipulation.”
Streeb, Dirk: J. Fekete et al. [2008]: The Value of Information Visualization doi:10.1007/978-3-540-70956-5_1 - 26.02.18 12:44 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 6 Encoding info in a manipulable medium
Streeb, Dirk: J. J. van Wijk [2005]: The Value of Visualization doi:10.1109/VISUAL.2005.1532781 - 25.02.18 13:35 (+-) Ambivalent One or more subsections sec. 4.6 Interaction is generally considered as ’good’. One could advocate the opposite: Interaction should be avoided, and well for two reasons. First of all, as mentioned before, allowing the user to modify S freely will lead to subjectiveness.
Streeb, Dirk: S. K. Card, J. D. Mackinlay and B. Shneiderman [1999]: Readings in Information Visualization – Using Vision to Think isbn:978-1-55860-533-6 - 06.02.18 12:59 (+) Positive Less than a sentence p. 7 … visual aids to cognition benefit from good visual representations of a problem and from interactive manipulation of those representations.
Streeb, Dirk: M. J. Eppler [2013]: What is an Effective Knowledge Visualization? Insights from a Review of Seminal Concepts doi:10.1007/978-1-4471-4303-1_1 - 06.02.18 09:58 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 8 …a normative definition of a KV [knowledge visualization] should amount to, namely a communicable image, consisting of various visual notations, that is interactively annotated in a playful yer systematic manner and leads to new discoveries while remaining flexible to incorporate future revisions and insights.
Streeb, Dirk: Z. Liu and J. T. Stasko [2010]: Mental Models, Visual Reasoning and Interaction in Information Visualization: A Top-down Perspective doi:10.1109/TVCG.2010.177 - 26.01.18 09:45 (+) Positive
