Title: Cross-reality Immersive Visual Analytics
Speaker: Prof. Wolfgang Stuerzlinger (Simon Fraser University)
Abstract: Understanding complex data is challenging. While 2D visualizations are prevalent, research has shown that users can benefit from seeing 3D visualizations for some types of higher-dimensional data. Yet, other types of data are better analyzed in 2D. Given that efficient interaction is a key component of effective visual analytics, I showcase work that presents a new touch-based interface for 2D visual analytics. Then, I discuss a comparison of visual analytics in 2D and 3D, and several studies that analyze efficient interaction and navigation techniques in immersive visual analytics systems.
