Designing visual analytics systems for disease spread and evolution: VAST 2010 mini challenge 2 and 3 award: Good overall design and analysis

Wood, J., Slingsby, A. and Dykes, J. (2010). Designing visual analytics systems for disease spread and evolution: VAST 2010 mini challenge 2 and 3 award: Good overall design and analysis. Paper presented at the Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST), 2010 IEEE Symposium on, 25 - 26 Oct 2010, Salt Lake City, Utah, US.

Abstract

Using two of the VAST 2010 mini challenges as a case study, we report on the design decisions and software development process used to create visual analytics software for understanding disease spread and mutation. The software we developed and the analysis conducted attempted to help us understand (a) how a fictitious disease may have spread between selected cities around the globe; and (b) how genetic sequences taken from infected patients may be used to chart the evolution of the disease and changes in its severity, drug resistance and other characteristics.
