Recent Publications

I’ve been blogging and writing on font attributes, multi-attribute labels and novel text based encodings in data visualization for a while. Eventually these get published. Here are a number of recent peer-reviewed papers, chapters and books (since 2013). The first section is specifically about text, typography and font attributes:

  1. The Design Space of Typeface
    (with Ebad Banissi) @ VisWeek, 2014: short paper and poster
    very short introduction into type attributes
  2. Using Font Attributes in Knowledge Maps and Information Retrieval
    (with Ebad Banissi) @ First Workshop on Knowledge Maps and Information Retrieval, 2014: paper
    application of type attributes to search, information retrieval and knowledge maps; first publication of techniques for proportional encoding and skim formatting
  3. Evaluating Lossiness and Fidelity in Information Visualization
    (with Ebad Banissi) @ SPIE  2105: paper
    a novel technique for measuring relative lossiness of visualization design alternatives
  4. Using Text in Visualizations for Micro/Macro Readings
    (with Ebad Banissi) @ TextVis 2015: paper
    more focused on labels; first publication with variants of textual stem & leaf plots
  5. Using Type to Add Data to Data Visualizations
    (with Ebad Banissi) @ TypeCon 2015: paper
    a fairly broad introduction to the topic; first publication with variation in x-height and font-width, in this case applied to prosodic encoding
  6. Font Attributes enrich Knowledge Maps and Information Retrieval
    (with Ebad Banissi) @ International Journal on Digital Libraries, 2016: journal article in HTML or PDF
    a comprehensive discussion of application of type attributes to search, information retrieval and knowledge maps

Some other recent papers about glyphs, financial vis, 3D and sports:

  1. High-Category Glyphs in Industry
    @ VisWeek 2015: paper
  2. Challenges in Financial Visualization: Panel
    @ VisWeek 2014: paper
  3. 3D InfoVis is Here to Stay
    @ 2014 IEEE VIS International Workshop on 3DVis: paper
  4. Bloomberg Sports Visualization for Pitch Analysis
    w/ co-author Bo Moon @ 1st Workshop on Sports Data Visualization: paper

Some chapters and full books on shapes, spheres and graphs:

  1. The Multiple Visual Attributes of Shape
    chapter in book: Information Visualisation: Techniques, Usability and Evaluation, 2014. Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Editors: Ebad Banissi, Francis T. Marchese, Camilla Forsell, Jimmy Johansson, pp.43-66. link to book (amazon) or here is a subset from an earlier paper.
  2. Information Visualization on Spheres
    w/ co-author Peter MacMurchy, chapter in the same book: Information Visualisation: Techniques, Usability and Evaluation, 2014. Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Editors: Ebad Banissi, Francis T. Marchese, Camilla Forsell, Jimmy Johansson, pp. 24-42.
