Characterizing Representation of Temporal Data Visualization

Henkin, R., Dykes, J. & Slingsby, A. (2016). Characterizing Representation of Temporal Data Visualization. Poster presented at the VIS 2016, 23-28 Oct 2016, Baltimore, USA.


Designing visualizations for exploration of temporal data requires several choices based on aspects of time and visual representation. Previous taxonomies have described existing visualizations based on these aspects without relating the visual representations. We propose to characterize existing visualization techniques based on both semantic aspects of time and visual representations. Our design space helps to identify how these different visual representations relate and give the possibility to combine attributes of representation from different techniques. We compare two examples of visualizations from the literature based on our taxonomy.
