PRISMA - A Multidimensional Information Visualization Tool Using Multiple Coordinated Views
Information visualization techniques have been successfully used to build visual and interactive analysis of data and data relationships. However, dimensionality, volume and diversity make it difficult for a single technique to completely solve the problem. Information visualization tools that support multiple coordinated views allow the user to better understand the dataset by providing different perspectives based on the same set of data items. These tools support the correlation between data views and the coordinated real-time interaction mechanisms. The goal of this paper is to present the PRISMA information visualization tool that explores the use of multiple coordinated views. PRISMA provides usability, portability and extensibility. Initial usability essays are discussed.
