Developing a detailed requirement analysis facilitates the building of
interactive visualization systems that support exploratory analysis of
multiple temporal event sequences. We discuss our experiences with
collaborators in several domains on how they have used our systems and
present a process model for exploratory search as the generalization of
our experiences. This process model is intended as an outline of
high-level analysis activities, and we hope can be a useful model for
future and on-going exploratory search tools.
The HCIL has a long, rich history of transforming the experience people have with new technologies. From understanding user needs, to developing and evaluating these technologies, the lab's faculty, staff, and students have been leading the way in HCI research and teaching.
