CATT Lab Researchers win Greg Harrington Award
UM Computer Science graduate students Darya Filippova, Andreea Olea, Michael VanDaniker and Krist Wongsuphasawat won the Greg Herrington Award from the National Academy of Sciences Transportation Research Board (TRB) for Excellence in Visualization Research for their paper entitled, "Visual Analytics for Transportation Incident Datasets".
Their novel, web-based, visual analytics tool is called ICE (Incident Cluster Explorer). It affords sophisticated yet easy to learn analysis of transportation incident datasets. Interactive maps, histograms, two-dimensional plots, and parallel coordinate plots are coordinated visualizations that allow users to discover relationships across these multiple views.
