Abstract
Characterizing the problem domain and understanding users' practices and processes are recognized as important steps in order to design and validate visualization, but are often disregarded in practice, also because of their complexity. We introduce the nested work ow model for design and validation of visual analytics, aimed at providing designers with a powerful and expressive modelling tool. This model enables the description of visual analytics processes, at different design levels, in terms of tasks, data, and users, including complex work ow patterns, data and knowledge flows, and collaboration between users. We discuss its application to two visual analytics projects, demonstrating its usefulness for their design and validation.
