Interactive Animated Mobile Information Visualisation

The potential of mobile information visualization is widely recognised but there are still relatively few guidelines for the design of mobile information visualization interfaces and there exists a general feeling that mobile visualization should be limited to simple operations on smaller datasets. We look to address these issues by considering a basic set of interactions and relating these to mobile device limitations in order to draft a set of low-level interface design guidelines. This analysis suggests that inventive use of existing information visualization techniques can overcome many device limitations and that interaction and animated view transitions are key to effective mobile information visualization in a number of cases. This is illustrated with case studies looking at a coordinated map and timeline interface for geo-temporal data, and a distorted scatterplot.
