Visual Analytics Benchmark Repository. About Us The repository: The Visual Analytics Benchmarks Repository contains resources to improve the evaluation of visual analytics technology.

Visual Analytics Benchmark Repository

Benchmarks contains datasets and tasks, as well as materials describing the uses of those benchmarks (the results of analysis, contest entries, controlled experiment materials etc.) Most benchmarks contain ground truth described in a solution provided with the benchmark, allowing accuracy metrics to be computed. How you can contribute: To contribute new Benchmarks or suggest the addition of new examples of use of the existing Benchmarks: Please contact Catherine Plaisant History: This repository replaces and extends the Information Visualization Benchmarks Repository started in 2003, with datasets from the InfoVis Contest. SEMVAST. News The old server that hosted the Repository died... so it was moved HERE: the new version of the Visual Analytics Benchmark Repository .


The original websites for a few older challenges also ran on now-outdated technology and stopped working, so we saved PDF copies of the pages and include them in the benchmark repository for archival purposes. The VAST Challenge 2014 was a success. The solutions and all entries will be posted soon on the Visual Analytics Benchmark Repository. Visual Analytics.

Swedish Web site: National Center for Visual Analytics (NCVA) is a Swedish national educational and research resource for Geovisual Analytics established in 2007 with financial support from the Swedish Knowledge Foundation's Visualization Program, VINNOVA (Swedish government agency), Vetenskapsrådet (Swedish Research Council), Unilever Research, Statistics Sweden, OECD, European Commission, Eurostat, SMHI, Norrköping Kommun and others. Professor Mikael Jern is the director. Mikael is a frequently invited speaker at international statistical Conferences - figure shows Eurostat "Europé 2020" Conference. Our research focuses on geovisual analytics methods and applications for spatial and spatio-temporal data which demonstrate the usefulness of these techniques, storytelling, geographic and information visualization, spatial cognition, quantitative data analysis e.g., (geo-)statistics/data science.

Monday, June 10th, 2013 - 10:26 The concept of visualization recalls a pivotal scene in the movie A Beautiful Mind which showed the protagonist, mathematician John Nash, looking at an expansive table of numbers.

The Use of Data Visualization in Government

Slowly, certain numbers seemed to glow, suggesting that Nash was perceiving a pattern among them, though no other researcher had been able to draw any meaning from the table. For most people, however, a table of numbers is not intrinsically meaningful. Think of the most prosaic example: a spreadsheet. Since their early days, spreadsheet applications have offered tools that allow users to create graphics of all sorts from their tables, the better for people to understand exactly what the data are showing. Institute: Visualisierungsinstitut der Universität Stuttgart. The Visualization Research Center (VISUS) is a central institution of the University of Stuttgart.

Institute: Visualisierungsinstitut der Universität Stuttgart

About 30 scientists research in different areas of Scientific Visualization, Visual Analytics, Visual Computing and Computer Graphics, as well as interdisciplinary, applied research. The latter results in a very close co-operation with non-visualization disciplines of the University of Stuttgart. As part of the Institute for Visualization and Interactive Systems (VIS), the insitute is embedded into the Faculty of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.
