Abstract

Modern information visualisation systems do not only support interactivity but also increasingly complex problem solving. In this study we compare two interactive information visualisation systems: VisuExplore and Gravi++. By analysing logfiles we were able to identify sets of activities and interaction patterns users followed while working with these systems. These patterns are an indication of strategies users adopt to find solutions. Identifying such patterns may help in improving the design of future information visualisation systems.
