Visualization is mainly concerned with the representation of
non-physical data like medical patient records or business data. Time
is a very important data dimension in many domains that is different
from others. A number of novel Information Visualization methods have
been developed in order to facilitate the exploration of data across
temporal contexts, but most of these methods are domain specific and
only take application specific time aspects into account.
My thesis work aims for providing a general framework for supporting the interactive visual exploration of temporal data over a broad range of domains and applications.
The approach I chose for achieving this goal is based on the visualization reference model. This model will be extended by the denotation of temporal attributes via meta data along a versatile time model. Furthermore, interactive overview visualizations of temporal data sets will be provided as starting point for the visual exploration process. The design of user interfaces and visualization methods will be performed using Interaction Design and Usability Engineering methods.
