Design Studies

  • EU Professional Migration Dataset (VALID)
  • TableMarkup – User-Guided Import of Time-oriented Data from Tables
  • Visual Analytics of Music (e.g., API)
  • Visual Analytics of Work (e.g., Hamster Time Tracking)
  • Visual Overview and Simplification of Publication Data (e.g., BibTeX, Zotero)
  • Data Generator for TimeBench with GUI and Configfile (a student is already working on that)
  • Browser Journeys with semantic zoom in space and time add geo-tagged photos and gps traces
  • Explore basic research in Austria based on database of FWF-funded research projects
  • Browse and analyze Vis literature by back-references and text near references

Software Infrastructure

  • Improvisional Visualization Design using prefuse (Rapid prototyping, tree a la ADAMS)
  • Joda Time as CalendarManager (a student is already working on that)
  • TimeRider with Scatter Plot Matrix
  • Extend prefuse to use modern Java2D features
  • TimeBench Database and Obvious interoperability
  • TimeBench: Tuning the Complexity and Performance of Time-oriented Data Lookup (IntervalTree; incl. unit tests)
  • TimeBench importers: email folders (mbox), BibTeX, MS Project, Hamster Time Tracking,, Git/GitHub|Lab/Subversion
  • Reimplement Lifelines2 with prefuse and TimeBench (demonstrate relative time)
  • TSA Validation with k-fold cross validation
  • Debug Mode for prefuse with extensive Sanitiy checks (e.g., wrong field names)
  • Extend prefuse with data structure features from IVTK (missing values, sparse columns, slimmer tree)

Empirical Research

  • Replication of Deceptive Visualizations study (Pandey et al., 2015)
  • Survey on Persuasive Visualization
  • TimeRider insight study
  • SemTimeZoom controlled experiment with more variables (maybe eye tracking?)
