Developing a Visual Analytics Approach to Analytic Problem-Solving

William Ribarsky

Visual analytics attacks large scale, complex, often incomplete data. What has become clear is that not only are the data complex, but the application problems are complex as well, often involving reasoning, insight discovery, hypothesis-building, evidence gathering, and actionable problem-solving. A major challenge of visual analytics is to offer a new integration of interactive visualization and analytic methods so that large scale, complex data and the complex problems from which they arise can be attacked together successfully. In this talk, I will present our approach to this challenge. I will illustrate this approach with some applications.
