Visualizing Complex Information

Matthew Chalmers, UBILAB (UBS Research Lab)


Matthew Chalmers gave an overview of the UBILAB Information Visualization Group recent work on visualisation techniques for complex, high-dimensional information and their application to textual documents, time series data, financial trade records and Excel spreadsheets. Work on two complementary areas was covered: firstly algorithms for finding 'map positions' in a 2- or 3-dimensional space which represent the similarities and patterns in a body of high dimensional data, and secondly the 'map symbols' and interaction with such a map.
