We will organize a Tutorial on Information Visualization for Innovating Research Methods at Spatial Cognition 2014 (SC2014) conference in Bremen on September 15th, 2014. The teachers of the tutorial are Tomi Kauppinen (Cognitive Systems Group, University of Bremen) and Willem van Hage (SynerScope B.V.).
In the tutorial we will introduce visual approaches for investigating spatial data in the context of other dimensions (such as social or temporal). The goal is to show via examples how information visualization, exploration and interaction support innovating new research methods. The tutorial materials will be made available online at LinkedScience.org/tutorials.
The main tutorial exercises will be done within the morning of the tutorial day. For the afternoon there is an optional session for studying how to apply visual analytics techniques to data brought by participants.
Thus while the focus of hands-on exercises of the morning session is in existing case examples the optional afternoon session is more about brainstorming and exchanging ideas about suitable methods for the data from the participants.
