Data visualizations are often represented in public discourse as objective proof of facts. However, a visualization is only a single translation of reality, just like any other media, representation devices, or modes of representation.
In this article, we present PixelClipper, a tool built for facilitating data engagement events. PixelClipper supports conversations around visualizations in public settings through annotation and commenting capabilities. It is recognized that understanding data is important for an informed society.
Exploring Design Opportunities for Visually Congruent Proxemics in Information Visualization: A Design Space
We explore design opportunities for varying visual complexity of information visualizations based on distance. Through considering visual congruency and proxemics interaction, we describe a design space that considers potential transitions between visualizations in relation to distance. Our design space is based on exploring prototyping and design possibilities.
