Week 12 Readings (and media)

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

This week we will read one paper and discuss its application to your term projects and we will view two videos that focus on network analysis and its applications.

  • Lam, H.; Bertini, E.; Isenberg, P.; Plaisant, C.; Carpendale, S.; , "Empirical Studies in Information Visualization: Seven Scenarios," Visualization and Computer Graphics, IEEE Transactions on , vol.18, no.9, pp.1520-1536, Sept. 2012. Suggested by: Morteza {This paper considers a wide range of strategies for empirical study of information visualization. The focus is not explicitly on visual analytics, but you should be able to envision ways in which each strategy (scenario) can be applied or extended for application to visual analytics application.}.
  • http://vimeo.com/12941123 (22min) & http://www.spato.net/about/spato.mp4 (10 min) + the 1 page intro: http://rocs.northwestern.edu/projects/spato/spato.html. While not suggested by Josh, I've asked him to lead discussion on this pair of videos. {Each of which presents use of a tool that leverage advances in network science. Rather than reading a paper (other than the 1-page intro to one of the videos, the focus here will be on what you learn from the video (both have extensive narration, thus represent multimedia "short papers"). For the first video, if you want more detail, Beatrice suggested this paper (not required) that you might want to look at: Broeck, W., Gioannini, C., Goncalves, B., Quaggiotto, M., Colizza, V. and Vespignani, A. 2011: The GLEaMviz computational tool, a publicly available software to explore realistic epidemic spreading scenarios at the global scale. BMC Infectious Diseases 11, 37 + the site for the tool is worth a look: http://www.gleamviz.org/ )
