Snap-Together Visualization: Coordinating Multiple Views to Explore Information
HCIL-99-10, CS-TR-4020, UMIACS-TR-99-28

Information visualizations with multiple coordinated views enable users to rapidly explore complex data and discover relationships. However, it is usually difficult for users to find or create the coordinated visualizations they need. Snap-Together Visualization allows users to coordinate multiple views that are customized to their needs. Users query their relational database and load results into desired visualizations. Then they specify coordinations between visualizations for selecting, navigating, or re-querying. Developers can make independent visualization tools ‘snap-able' by including a few hooks.

Keywords: User Interface, Coordination, Multiple Views, Tightly Coupled, Information Visualization.
