The VisHub is and interdisciplinary research lab seeking creative ways to interactive, exploratory and explanatory data visualizations across domains and environments (e.g., screen, physical, immersion). Our goal is to make data visualiztion and data analytics understandable by everyone. We are based at the Institute for Design Informatics and the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. Our research includes, but is not limited to:
Designing visualization activities and teaching resouces for education with visualization Web
In this project we are applying a combination of natural language processing and data visualisation to UK hospital guidelines for treating COVID-19 patients. Web
Running from June 15 to July 17. https://datavis-online.github.io
Data Visualization Cheat Sheets are aimed at supporting learning and teaching of data visualization techinques and investigate ways to better teach data visualization in general. http://visualizationcheatsheets.github.io
Data Comicscombine visual language and narrative patterns from traditional comics to tell expressive stories with data and visaulization. We explore this exciting medium and develop workshops and guiding material. http://datacomics.net
The Edinburgh VisHub is an university-wide lab for data visualization equipment to foster research, collaboration, learning, and outreach. DXR and IATK are two toolkits for creating immersive data visualizations in augmented and virtual reality. Check how to participate in our upcoming workshop at CHI 2020.
