Visualisation in the Social Sciences Workshop

Towards a Research Agenda for Social Science Visualisation

TABLE 3: Thirty-five issues agreed at Stage 2 (Groups of Two)

A The potential of visualisation for the construction of non hierarchical texts such as CD and interactive maps
A Research into user experiences, appropriations etc of visualisation, its tools and the implications of this for dissemination
A Research to create a way of identifying and forging links between different work on visualisation
A Research into how visualisation can inform problem formulation as well a problem solving,
A Communication between disciplines
A Development and incorporation of techniques and assessment of their utility
A Innovative use of the technology
A Repository of example case studies and tools.
A Naming and shaming of the worst examples of visualisation by academics
A Visualisation of highly multivariate data
A Schematic visualisation
A Chernoff face research centre (?)
B Collaborative visualisation
B Evaluation off visualisation techniques (cognitive, empirical. theoretical, How do we reason?)
B Visualisation on the web (accessibility)
B Visualisation of qualitative information in the social sciences
B Use of visualisation in spatial modelling
