    Force-directed Helps to identify overall gestalt, indentifying clusters usually a

    big mess Matrix Helps to see all links, identify link strengths ordering is crucial no perception of “gestalt” Radial layout Regular, aesthetic placement helps to identify individual nodes and links, ordering, grouping are crucial no relation between link length and strength CHOOSE THE RIGHT TRADE-OFF

    A User Study on Visualizing Directed Edges in Graphs Holten,

    van Wijk Figure 2. The six single-cue directed-edge representations used in the first user experiment. (a) “arrow”; (b) “light-to-dark”; (c) “dark-to-light”; (d) “green-to-red”; (e) “curved”; (f) “tapered”.

    Things to work with Layout Implicit vs explicit - do

    the axes have meaning, or is just the relative positioning important? Interaction and behavior Focus selection Start with blank slate, then place items Filtering, brushing, zooming, etc. Visual markers for nodes and edges Labels
  34. 63.

    Things to think about Does it really, really need to

    be a network? What is more important: Big picture or local neighborhood? Do we need really need lines? If so, how can we make them as unobtrusive as possible How can the user set focus points? How do we help with grouping and ordering?

    emoto is a unique data art project that sets out

    to visualise the worldwide emotional response to the Olympic Games 2012. Created by Moritz Stefaner, Drew Hemment, Studio NAND. A FutureEverything project with MIT SENSEable City Lab for the Cultural Olympiad programme and London 2012 Festival. Supported by Datasift, co-sponsored by GE and funded by Arts Council England and WE PLAY/ Legacy Trust UK. @emoto
