Abstract

Collaborative decision-making has become an integral part of the analysis process aiming to get insight into multivariate data. To further encourage this workflow numerous co-located, multi-user systems have been developed consisting of large multi-touch screens or interactive tabletops. But such frameworks are typically expensive and unavailable outside dedicated environments as for example laboratories. Therefore we developed the Dynamic Data Explorer, short DDE, a multi-user system that enables users to join, in an ad-hoc manner, with their own mobile devices. Since forming groups should be possible in various locations, the tracking system, enabling spatial awareness of the devices, has to be light-weight and small. Near Field Communication (NFC) is a widespread transmission technology which fulfils these properties and is used in our framework to enable different side-by-side arrangements of devices. This allows users to explore multivarate data visualizations on a system where the number of devices and their set-up can be modified at all times.
