InfoLab21 Needs Your Data
Researchers in the Computing department have developed a technique to help gain a better insight into visualisations of large amounts of data. They are looking for businesses to participate in a study to evaluate the effectiveness of their information visualisation application which utilises their novel sampling technique.
Ideally they would like users who regularly use interactive parallel coordinate plots or scatter plots to analyse their data and have large amounts of data that cannot normally be displayed all at once on the screen due to overplotting of the lines or points.
The tool can be used to spot correlations in data and has many potential applications, for example, spotting market trends and analysing buying behaviour.
