VINI Phase II will develop an end-to-end big network data visualization system. The VINI Phase II system will include visual decluttering features that simplify the display of graph data as the number of nodes and links increases. In addition, it will have visual interaction tools that allow users to find and filter data and metadata for the network in an intuitive manner. We will also develop an automated visual analysis application that employs cognitive models to evaluate the visual saliency and visual dissimilarity of a display. Lastly, we collect and analyze behavioral data that guides the interface design and the cognitive models for the visualization of large network data.
