Resources on Set Visualization

Visualizing Sets and Set-typed Data


Software Tools, Demos, Videos, and Conference Slides

 

 

Companion website for our survey on set visualization, published in Computer Graphics Forum (application/pdf icon pdf).

A graphical list of set-related tasks is available here.

A printable and more comprehensive list of the resources is available in PDF as supplementary material of the survey.

NEW: The slides of our EuroVis 2014 talk are available here (in Powerpoint format).

 

 

 

New: a publication browser of the surveyed techniques is available here.

New: another publication browser of the surveyed techniques is available here (by Adil Yalçın).

Note: we appreciate if you refer us to related material and techniques for set visualization that we missed, also we welcome your feedback or proposals to our work (contact Bilal Alsallakh or Luana Micallef)
