Abstract

Interaction techniques for information visualization systems require control elements to interact with the data. These elements consume visual space and this is one of the major limiting factors of a visual analytics dashboard. This work introduces interaction methods to control the visualizations of a dashboard without the need of additional visual space. These in-place control elements give the dashboard designer the possibility to design more compact dashboards, while maintaining the same functionality without using space filling controls. This is achieved by hovering areas in the visualizations which opens controls or triggers events.
