“Task-Based Effectiveness of Interactive Contiguous Area Cartograms” accepted in TVCG

Our collaboration paper with Professor Gastner‘s team (Yale-NUS) was accepted earlier this week and will appear in IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG) very soon!

The focus of the work is on cartograms, we evaluated different mechanisms to help people process information from cartograms, which are maps on which statistical information is shown in diagrammatic form. Specifically, we evaluated three different mechanisms to help users process information from cartograms: linked brushing, tooltips and animations. Overall, these mechanisms are helpful for different kind of tasks, and a general guideline would be to offer them all for any interactive cartograms.

The full paper is available on arXiv.
