Movement as an Aid to Understanding Graphs

Bovey, J., Rodgers, P., Benoy, F. (2003) Movement as an Aid to Understanding Graphs. In: Seventh International Conference on Information Visualization (IV03). IEEE International Conference on Information Visualisation . pp. 472-478. IEEE ISBN 0-7695-1988-1. (doi:10.1109/IV.2003.1218027) (KAR id:13947)


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.
