Practical (Implementation):

Literature Work:


Overview

  • Various TreeMap algorithms can be used as layout (e.g., circular vs. rectangular).
  • TreeMaps can be combined with glyph designs (e.g., for time-series data).

Problem Statement

  • Which layout-glyph combination supports which task best?
  • Does glyph performance change with respect to the used layout?

Tasks

  • State reasonable hypothesis based on related work.
  • Adapt an (existing) simple prototype to perform an online user study.
  • Conduct a user study to address the stated hypothesis.
  • Analyze the results and propose design considerations.

Requirements

  • Good knowledge about Information Visualization.
  • Interest and high motivation in conducting user studies.

Scope/Duration/Start

  • Scope: Master
