User controls for improved data visualisation: A combination of disciplines approach

  • Peter O'Connor

Abstract

The world is producing more data than ever before. Our ability to process this data relies on quality data visualisation tools that are tailored to larger datasets. The problem is that the individual disciplines involved in data visualisation are not collaborating, leading to a situation where data is not being visualised as well as required. This is particularly evident in software. By combining the expertise of each discipline into a suite of user controls, an improvement can be demonstrated. The results indicate a successful combination of expertise, leading to a visualisation that consumes larger datasets, maintains graphical refinement, and provides interactive features, which enables meaningful information to be derived. This contributes towards the need to redress the balance between data production and data processing.
