Workshop 2
Treemap Implementations and Applications

Organized By:
Ben Shneiderman, University of Maryland
Marc Frons, Smartmoney

Submit position statement to ben@cs.umd.edu

Treemaps are a space-filling visualization for hierarchical structures that are extremely effective in showing attributes of leaf nodes by size and color coding (www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/treemaps). Treemaps are a continuing topic of research and application at the HCIL and at Smartmoney (www.smartmoney.com) whose marketmap has attracted international attention and design awards. To promote discussion and share insights, the HCIL and Smartmoney are organizing a one-day workshop with 15-25 people to discuss implementations and applications.

Computerworld’s story about the workshop, “Treemaps Bloom” http://www.computerworld.com/databasetopics/data/story/0,10801,61776,00.html described the excitement and innovations presented at workshop.

Current status of Treemap is described at http://www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/treemap3/.
