Activity-Centered Visualization

Center for Activity-Center Visualization, Director: Jim Hollan

The Center for Activity-Centered Visualization questions the presupposition that information is fundamentally passive data disconnected from processes, tasks, context, and personal histories. Our goal to move beyond this legacy view of static information and a document-centric application paradigm to design and evaluate activity-centered information entities that dynamically alter their appearance and behavior in response to interaction and context.  We are developing a novel multi-scale browser-based information framework designed to support dynamic representations of notes, sketches, papers, data analyses, and visualizations of activity.
