The aim of this project was to design new visualizations to take advantage of the technology of high-resolution displays. These new visualizations would allow users to present large quantities of geospatially referenced information on increased space. The use of multiple monitors to either view one project in detail or several projects at a glance offers countless possibilities. However, in a multiple-monitor workplace scenario, user efficiency may be compromised.
Previous work in visualization design focused on low-resolution displays, and left little guidance for designing high-resolution visualizations. The goal of this proposal was to develop the basic knowledge and guidelines needed to design effective interactive visualizations for high-resolution display. These guidelines could then be used as building blocks in the future construction of effective visualization applications that would offer significant improvements in intelligence analysis ability.
