- Organized my thoughts on trust and awareness
- GMap: Drawing Graphs as Maps (also Visualizing Graphs and Clusters as Maps)
- Yifan Hu – I am a member of the Yahoo Research (New York) working on data mining, machine learning and visualization. Before joining Yahoo I was a member of the Information Visualization department at AT&T Labs — Research, working on graph and text visualization, machine learning and numerical algorithms. From 2001 to 2007, I worked at Wolfram Research, developing numerical and graph theoritical software. Prior to April 2001, I worked in the Computational Science and Engineering Department at Daresbury Laboratory, conducting research in algorithms for high performance computing. For further chronological details, see here.
- Information visualization is essential in making sense out of large data sets. Often, high-dimensional data are visualized as a collection of points in 2-dimensional space through dimensionality reduction techniques. However, these traditional methods often do not capture well the underlying structural information, clustering, and neighborhoods. In this paper, we describe GMap: a practical tool for visualizing relational data with geographic-like maps. We illustrate the effectiveness of this approach with examples from several domains All the maps referenced in this paper can be found in this http URL
- Need to take a look at these and see if there is disagreement on the location of physical objects, or it is the layering of conceptual objects such as borders on the map.
- Finished the first pass at the CHI DC proposal!
ACM has built an ENTIRELY new LaTex format for extended CHI abstracts that breaks when you look at it sideways (https://github.com/sigchi/Document-Formats). I have literally spent the last two-three hours trying to:
- make a single author (success!)
- get the abstract in (partial success?)
- get the figures to work
- bring in any other text
- get the bibliography to work. (At all. I mean, like adding a single citation breaks everything.)
