General Research in Defining Visual Analytics
The information overload is a well-known phenomenon of the information age, since due to the progress in computer power and storage capacity over the last decades, data is produced at an incredible rate, and our ability to collect and store these data is increasing at a faster rate than our ability to analyze it. For decision makers, analysts or emergency response teams it is an essential task to rapidly extract relevant information from the ﬂood of data.

General Research in Evaluating Glyph Designs
Time series data is the basis for decision making in many different application domains. Detecting trends, spotting peaks, or investigating single points in time from a visual representation are daily analysis tasks of vital importance. Yet, due to glyphs’ power in presenting multiple time series for comparison, a multitude of designs have been proposed. In order to address this lack of guidance on the use of temporal glyphs, we ran a controlled experiment to compare four carefully selected glyphs using two different data densities.
