The Circle Of Thrones: Conveying the Story of Game of Thrones Using Radial Infographics

Teaser Image
The use of infographics has proven to be effective in conveying information to an audience. Movie plots, given their complexity and rich metadata, are usually good candidates to be visualized using such an approach. In this project we investigated the problem of visualizing the relationships between the characters of the popular television show "Game Of Thrones" inspired by the book "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R. R. Martin. The amount of information to display and the complexity of the relationships between the characters proved this task to be difficult, therefore we propose a radial layout designed to reduce clutter and enhance readability, which is suitable also to an audience not familiar with the show. Our proposal stands alongside the State-of-the-Art and opens the way to a new class of techniques for the visualization of complex social interactions.
