Visual Analytics Award

Jo Wood has won an award for Outstanding Presentation of Patterns in Context in the VAST Challenge 2016 - Mini Challenge 2.

Jo developed visual analytics methods to show patterns in a steady stream of simulated operations data. These include smart building sensor data and locations recorded by 'prox cards' that monitor the movement of staff members in a 3-storey building. The analysis is intended to identify security issues and safeguard employees and demonstrates the kind of interactive designs or analysis that we produce at the giCentre.
