Reading 13: Bi-Variate Displays

by Mike Gleicher on March 9, 2012

To get you thinking about displaying multiple dimensions simultaneously, please read:

  • Colin Ware, “Quantitative Texton Sequences for Legible Bivariate Maps,” IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, vol. 15, no. 6, pp. 1523-1530, Nov./Dec. 2009, doi:10.1109/TVCG.2009.175  (ieee page, colin’s version)

For more on bi-variate displays, you can read some of the other suggestions from the previous course offering. These readings are optional.

To work up to multi-variate displays, I’d like you to read:

  • Multi-View Methods. Chapter 6 of Tamara Munzner. Information Visualization: Principles, Methods, and Practice. To be published. (chapter here) (whole book on her website)

Less directly connected to the conversation about bi-variate displays, but it will prove useful over the next few weeks.

On Piazza, please comment on how things we’ve read (including this Ware reading) connect to the challenges of multi-variate displays.
