Exploratory Visualization: The process is more Important than the End-Result

Jonathan Roberts

University of Kent

The essence of Exploratory visualization (EV) is to try out scenarios (generated via different parameterizations); through this trial and discovery the user will hopefully better understand the underlying information. During this process they may try different parameters/algorithms and then compare realizations; they may learn more from the whole experience rather than viewing one particular `eureka' visualization. Exploration may occur and be managed in different ways. This presentation will first look at more traditional forms of exploratory visualization through the use of Multiple Linked Views; where (for example) the same information is displayed in different forms, in different windows, and the interaction is coordinated. Second, I will present research into non-visual exploratory visualization, where the information is realized and explored using haptics/force-feedback or sonification.
