  2. Benjamin Wiederkehr, 18.01.2013 Content and representation models for the exploration,

    evaluation and communication of personal financial information. Practice- and application-oriented (Type A) Supervised by Prof. Dr. Gerhard Buurman and Dr. Karmen Franinović 2 Visual Instruments for Personal Finances

  4. Benjamin Wiederkehr, 18.01.2013 Theoretical Framework User Activities «How do I

    have to change my spending to achieve [g]?» Interaction Techniques Select, Encode, Filter, … Interaction Attributes Continuity, Directness, Movement, … Evaluation Questions Data exploration, Hypothesis generation, Decision making, … 4
  5. Benjamin Wiederkehr, 18.01.2013 Most important findings Focus on one user

    context Decided to focus on «leasure» and this has impact on the user activities and the visual and functional design of the application. Flesh out the prototypes based on the user activities In order to be able to test interaction techniques and attributes. Too many visualization attributes to consider them all Based on the research questions and considering the user context, the following are most important: Directness, movement, speed and proximity. 5

  7. Benjamin Wiederkehr, 18.01.2013 User Context 7

  8. Benjamin Wiederkehr, 18.01.2013 User Activities How does a reduction of

    [a] impact my wealth? How does an increase in [b] impact my wealth? How would my liquidity look like in the case of [c]? Can I afford to buy [d]? When can I afford to increase my spending for [e]? How much do I spend on [f]? How do I have to change my spending to achieve [g]? Do other people spend as much as I am on [h] If I didn't do [i], how would my wealth look like? … 8

  16. Benjamin Wiederkehr, 18.01.2013 Interaction Techniques Select: mark something as interesting

    Explore: show me something else Reconfigure: show me a different arrangement Encode: show me a different representation Level of Detail: show me more or less detail Filter: show me something conditionally Connect: show me related items 15 J.

  18. Benjamin Wiederkehr, 18.01.2013 Interaction Attributes Directness: indirect → direct Movement:

    static → dynamic Proximity: precise → proximate Speed: delaying → rapid Connectivity: independent → networked Continuity: discrete → continuous Orderliness: random → orderly Proximity: precise → proximate Pace: slow → fast Resolution: scarce → dense State: fixed vs. changing Time-depth: concurrent → sequential 17 Y.-K.

  20. Benjamin Wiederkehr, 18.01.2013 03 GOALS 19

  21. Benjamin Wiederkehr, 18.01.2013 Goals for the Instrument Toolbox Small and

    simple applications that are able to answer specific questions individually. Format The right format feels less like work and more like enterntainment, exploration, play, challenge. User Experience The user should feel comfortable navigating his information and answering his questions. 20
  22. Benjamin Wiederkehr, 18.01.2013 Goals for the Principles Applicable The design

    principles can be embedded in the information visualization design process. Verified The design principles are veryfied and tested by a group of practitioners. State of the Art The design principles are in line with the current research and literature. 21 Pontis, S., 2010. Methodological approaches for diagramming information. Pontis, S., 2009. Design method for mapping complex information (MapCI). Kirk, A., 2013. Data Visualization: A Successful Design Process.

  24. Benjamin Wiederkehr, 18.01.2013 Self-assessment Theoretical work The thesis is not

    as far as I would like it to be. Technical work The development progresses fine but getting and working with data is a bit of a challenge. 23

  27. Benjamin Wiederkehr, 18.01.2013 Next steps Instrument Conduct user experiments with

    the test environment. Evaluation and iteration of the prototypes and the test environment. Within the next days, I will roll out more experiments to a group of users that I haven’t talked to. Principles Identify the design principles. Formulate how to apply them. Discuss them with the group of practitioners and my mentors. 26
