Increasingly we are seeing software for generating visualization being embedded in live documents that mix textual narrative, graphics and code. Examples include Observable, Jupyter and R Notebook. This opens up new opportunities to enhance such environments and change the practice of designing, constructing, sharing and using visualization. The giCentre has developed a new framework for considering integrated narrative and visualization – Literate Visualization – and we seek interested researchers to help develop both the theory and practice.
Objectives (can focus on a subset of these)
- Review existing and emerging approaches in narrative-based visualization
- Enrich the theory of Literate Visualization
- Develop Literate Visualization construction software
- Evaluate Literate Visualization as a design and communication process.
- Story telling in Visualization
- Visualization Design
- Construction of web-based visualization software
- Visual Data Science
