A guide to visual multi-level interface design from synthesis of empirical study evidence by Heidi Lam( )

Displaying multiple levels of data visually has been proposed to address the challenge of limited screen space. Although many previous empirical studies have addressed different aspects of this question, the information visualization research community does not currently have a clearly articulated consensus on how, when, or even if displaying data at multiple levels is effective. To shed more light on this complex topic, we conducted a systematic review of 22 existing multi-level interface studies to extract high-level design guidelines. To facilitate discussion, we cast our analysis findings into a four-point decision tree: (1) When are multi-level displays useful? (2) What should the higher visual levels display? (3) Should the different visual levels be displayed simultaneously, or one at a time? (4) Should the visual levels be embedded in a single display, or separated into multiple displays? Our analysis resulted in three design guidelines: (1) the number of levels in display and data should match; (2) high visual levels should only display task-relevant information; (3) simultaneous display, rather than temporal switching, is suitable for tasks with multi-level answers

Beyond Time and Errors: Novel Evaluation Methods for Visualization : BELIV 2014 fifth bi-annual workshop Paris, France, November 10, 2014; proceedings by BELIV -- BEyond time and errors: novel evaLuation methods for Information Visualization( )

Visualization has shown its ability to produce powerful tools for analyzing, understanding, and communicating data and making it accessible for several different tasks and purposes. Impact of visualization to everyday work and personal lives is demonstrated by many successes stories--such as the increasing prevalence of Tableau, the interactive visualizations produced by the New York Times, or toolkits like VTK/Paraview to name just a few. A large community of casual and professional users are increasingly consuming and producing both interactive and static visualizations. While interactive visualizations move from research into practice at an increasing rate, it still remains an important challenge to find appropriate methods to evaluate their utility and usability. There is a growing need in the community to develop special approaches and metrics for evaluation at all stages of the development life cycle that address specific needs in visualization. This need is reflected, for example, in the increasing number of papers on visualization evaluation--not just at BELIV but also in other venues such as the IEEE VIS conferences and EuroVis. The goal of the BELIV workshop is to continue to provide a dedicated event for discussing visualization evaluation and to spread the word on alternative and novel evaluation methods and methodologies in our community
