Knowledge-assisted Visualization in the Cultural Heritage Domain - Case Studies, Needs and Reflections

Patricia Martín-Rodilla

Abstract

We investigate on how to build software systems that assist cultural heritage researchers to reconstruct past events on the basis of present data. In this setting, knowledge-assisted visualization can be a useful mechanism to improve the knowledge generation process and emphasise collaboration. However, a useful visualization depends on the goals of the user and the specific research problem involved. In this position paper we present a set of case studies to defend the study of cognitive inferences through discourse analysis and its typologies as a starting point in the knowledge-assisted elicitation process. Once a complete study of usual inferences in the cultural heritage domain is done, the visualization needs in this domain will be easier to determine and apply, attaining our objective of knowledge-assisted visualization.
