Bovey, John and Rodgers, Peter and Benoy, Florence (2003) Movement as an Aid to Understanding Graphs. In: 7th International Conference on Information Visualization (IV 2003), JUL 16-18, 2003 , LONDON, ENGLAND.
This paper describes a graph visualization method that attempts to aid the understanding of graphs by adding continuous local movement to graph diagrams. The paper includes a discussion of some of the many different kinds of potential graph movement and then describes an empirical trial that was conducted to investigate whether one kind of movement helps with a particular graph comprehension task. Although the results of the trial are promising, the degree of benefit afforded by the movement varies between graphs and the paper includes a discussion about graph features which may account for this discrepancy.
