Voyagers and voyeurs: supporting asynchronous collaborative information visualization
This paper describes mechanisms for asynchronous collaboration in the context of information visualization, recasting visualizations as not just analytic tools, but social spaces. We contribute the design and implementation of sense.us, a web site supporting asynchronous collaboration across a variety of visualization types. The site supports view sharing, discussion, graphical annotation, and social navigation and includes novel interaction elements. We report the results of user studies of the system, observing emergent patterns of social data analysis, including cycles of observation and hypothesis, and the complementary roles of social navigation and data-driven exploration. Author Keywords Information visualization, asynchronous collaboration, social data analysis, communication-minded visualization, groupware, bookmarks, annotation ACM Classification Keywords H.5.2.
