Exploring Temporal Granularities with Visualization

Henkin, R., Slingsby, A. & Dykes, J. (2015). Exploring Temporal Granularities with Visualization. Poster presented at the VIS 2015, 25-10-2015 - 30-10-2015, Chicago, USA.


Time can be expressed and aggregated into concepts called granularities. Granularities are defined in a structure with their rules of conversion that may take the form of trees or graphs, thus it’s possible to design tools that dynamically explore different granularities that might reveal patterns hidden in other levels. We described an intial investigation of the use of interactive visualization techniques for that purpose and define future work to be done.
