VisLink: Revealing Relationships Amongst Visualizations
Christopher Collins, Sheelagh Carpendale, Gerald Penn
We have developed VisLink, a method by which visualizations and the relationships between them can be interactively explored. Our approach uses multiple 2D layouts, drawing each one in its own plane. These planes can then be placed and re-positioned in 3D space: side by side, in parallel, or in chosen placements that provide favoured views. Relationships, connections, and patterns between visualizations can be revealed and explored using a variety of interaction techniques including spreading activation and search filters.
