  • Parallel Co-ordinate Curves
    This work on the OPAL project uses curves instead of traditional poly-lines to alleviate some of the effects of the 'crossing problem' - i.e. following lines through dense knots or cross-overs.

  • Information Visualisation
    Information visualisation is the use of enhanced Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) to communicate and interact with complex data sets such as social networks, multiattribute tables, and financial data. Pages of text and numbers are not the most effective way to communicate or understand information.
