iVoLVER : Interactive Visual Language for Visualization Extraction and Reconstruction
MetadataShow full item record
We present the design and implementation of iVoLVER, a tool that allows users to create visualizations without textual programming. iVoLVER is designed to enable flexible acquisition of many types of data (text, colors, shapes, quantities, dates) from multiple source types (bitmap charts, webpages, photographs, SVGs, CSV files) and, within the same canvas, supports transformation of that data through simple widgets to construct interactive animated visuals. Aside from the tool, which is web-based and designed for pen and touch, we contribute the design of the interactive visual language and widgets for extraction, transformation, and representation of data. We demonstrate the flexibility and expressive power of the tool through a set of scenarios, and discuss some of the challenges encountered and how the tool fits within the current infovis tool landscape.

Perceived duration of brief visual events is mediated by timing mechanisms at the global stages of visual processing Beattie, Lee; Curran, William; Benton, Christopher P.; Harris, Julie M.; Hibbard, Paul B. (2017-03-01) - Journal articleThere is a growing body of evidence pointing to the existence of modality-specific timing mechanisms for encoding sub-second durations. For example, the duration compression effect describes how prior adaptation to a dynamic ...

An interactive Web ...
The visual and beyond : characterizing experiences with auditory, haptic and visual data representations Hogan, Trevor; Hinrichs, Uta; Hornecker, Eva (ACM, 2017-06-10) - Conference itemResearch in sonification and physicalization have expanded data representation techniques to include senses beyond the visual. Yet, little is known of how people interpret and make sense of haptic and sonic compared to ...
