abstract

One of the problems in information visualisation is that solutions are rarely arrived at by the application of method, which means that is generally remains the domain of experts to design visualisation solutions for a particular domain. Also, visualiations are not often used outside the domain they were designed for because reuse is a problem. In this talk I will present a method for visualisation design and selection that puts together earlier attempts at achieving these aims. I will discuss the problems we are still faced with and the plans we have for investigating these to arrive at a comprehensive method for information visualisation.
