Visualization projects

The final deadline for submitting the visualization projects (also the revised versions) is 28 January 2002.

  • The visualization project must be completed to pass the course
  • The project may be passed or passed with distinction (in latter case you'll get some extra points to your grade)
  • The topics were given on the 19 October lecture.
  • Submit a short abstract (~half A4) that will specify the data and methods (including programs) that you plan to use by 3 October 2001 (t61271@mail.cis.hut.fi). The abstract does not need to be a complete description of your plans; we would just like to have a chance to comment on what you are going to do beforehand. Please don't hesitate to ask if you need e.g. references, pointers to data sets or some other assistance.
  • Submit the results of your project by 13 December 2001.
  • You should write a short project report (2-4 pages) that will, among other things, describe the methods/programs you have considered and actually used and why have chosen them.
  • It would be appreciated if the project reports and/or program codes would be released under some open source license.

The following topics were given on the 19 October lecture:

  1. Color space (visualization of gamut)
  2. Color space (gamut mapping)
  3. Fisheye-mode to Emacs [Look at Furnas' article in Card et al; nobody took this]
  4. OpenDX-module [I.e. some OpenDX visualization application of your choise]
  5. (OpenDX-)user interface (table lens, Card et al 343)
  6. OpenDX fisheye (of some continuous data, e.g. Card et al from page 350 onwards)
  7. Mindmap with focus and context [for Mindmaps see Ware, last chapter]
  8. Construct an effective navigation structure in some domains (e.g. of web site; how to find most effective navigation tree, Card et al chapter 7; Ware last chapter)
  9. Demos of human visual system for teaching purposes; pre-attentive features
  10. Demos of human visual system for teaching purposes; cognitive features
  11. Comparing MDS modes, PCA to map world map to a sheet
  12. Using MDS, PCA to cluster countries with some relevant statistics
  13. Cone tree (of e.g. file system structure) [Card et al, look at the index]
  14. Tree map (of e.g. file system structure) [Card et al, look at the index]
  15. Design an immersive information workspace system (like Starlight) (and make a minimal demo) [Card et al p. 551]
  16. Visualize the relations of text of a book (chapters, subchapters) (e.g. Card et al p. 413)
  17. Make animation of some suitable data
  18. Show how to obtain shape from motion by using animation [Ware p. 232 onwards]
  19. Make demonstrations for teaching purposes of 3D data set and different depth ques [for discussion on depth cues see e.g. Ware chapter 8]
  20. Demos of portraying movement (in still images) for teaching purposes using some suitable data [to get started browse e.g. through chapter 6 of Ware]
  21. Make a comparative visualization with PCA/ICA of some suitable data set
  22. Visualize some multi-dimensional data with MDS
  23. Visualize set of algorithms from Knuth (pedagogical vis.; e.g. how different types of sorting algorithms work, e.g. chapter 9 of Ware)
