Collaborative projects by Jonathan C. Roberts
Categorized by domain
(1) To perform visual analytics of heritage records.
(2) To understand better ways to visualize heritage assets (3d data) in the wild;
(3) To capture heritage data that is vulnerable (e.g., environmental risks, human) and research new capture and analytic techniques. e.g,. use crowd sourcing, and UAVs.
(4) To find better ways to interact with heritage data. Use alternative views; different modal interfaces (touch table), 3d printing etc.
Education, Learning Analytics, and Visualization Theory
(1) To help users develop better visualization creation skills
(2) To provide facilities that enable visualization ideation
(3) To develop Learning Analytics tools, that facilitate learning
(4) Investigate theories of visualization
Visualization Display Models - ways to classify visual representations.
Beyond the Desktop
(1) see the popular "Visualization beyond the Desktop- the next big thing" our article published in IEEE Computer.
(2) Our short paper "The desktop is dead, long live the desktop! Towards a multisensory desktop for visualization
(3) Sewn with Ariadne’s Thread – Visualizations for Wearable & Ubiquitous Computing (Ritsos, Mearman, VandeMoere, Roberts) at the Death of the Desktop workshop IEEE VIS 2014, and
(4) Using all our senses: the need for a Unified theoretical approach to Multi-sensory information visualization at the workshop "The role of Theory in information visualization" VIS 2010.
