Beyond Google Analytics: Visualization of Web Usage Data

Problem: 

Web servers keep log files that record all requests for resources. Many analysis tool such as awstats simply show aggregated data (e.g., most popular pages). Google Analytics provides some more sophisticated analysis approaches, yet deeper exploration of web usage data require more interactive visual interfaces.

Aim: 

Provide a systematic survey of interactive visual interfaces for exploration and analysis of web usage data. Focus on scientific publications.
