A New Interactive Information Visualization Framework based on the Object-oriented Views of Querying and Visualizing Databases

Wei Shi, Yuzuru Tanaka

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new visualization framework which can help users to create highly-customized and interactive visualizations. This framework includes an Object-Oriented View Manipulation Model for querying and manipulating data, as well as an Object-Oriented Visualization Implementation Model for creating visualizations. The visualizations created using our framework allow users to directly manipulate them, which indirectly modifies the tree structures of the two models. Such interactions enable users to visually define an Object-Oriented view for querying the database, to visually create visualizations, and to modify existing visualizations. Users can also interact with the visualization results to filter out their visual objects which do not satisfy the user-specified conditions.
