Controllable Animation in Information Visualization
Does animation help to build more vivid and understandable visualizations or confuse readers? Animation allows us to show a reader a series of images to build a coherent idea between different visual representations.
In this project, we would like to explore various types of animation in order to create a suitable one for assisting readers to interpret the changes from one visualization to another (ex., data matrix <-> bar chart <-> radial chart).
- Research animation taxonomy and principles of animation
- Design and develop a controlled animation to translate different information visualizations
- Examine the effectiveness of animation in visualization
- Knowledge of English language
- Good programming skills
- Knowledge of WebGL
The project should be implemented as a web-based application (to be discussed).
