Horizon Graph

Stephen Few over at Perceptual Edge has written an article about how Panopticon developped a new way to visualize data over a specific period of time and how this visualization got academic backup from a research team. The researchers worked  independently and tested various variations of the horizon graph. Measuring readability und the easy of understanding the data they came to a set of design implications to optimize the visualizations. The description of the horizon graph and it’s variations is best summed up in the bespoken paper.

The first article, the paper and the article about the cooperation are superb reads and we highly recommend them as a case study of succesful cooperation between software vendors and academic researchers.

    It is great to see this kind of pick-up on the article from Heer et al, and Stephen Few’s blog post about it. I would like to let all readers know that software developers at corporations or academic institutions are welcome to download a 30-day evaluation copy of our software. This will allow you to try out the Horizon Graph first hand. We have identical offerings for both Java and .NET.

    Use the request form on this page, and specify either “Panopticon Developer .NET SDK” or “Panopticon Developer Java SDK”: http://www.panopticon.com/products/trial.htm
