Abstract"3 Sigma Research proposes an innovative two-part approach that provides both a newinformation visualization capability called the InfoSlider and a scientifically-basedCase Study methodology called the Visualization Evaluation Environment (VEE). TheInfoSlider allows users to visualize data through various ranges of objectattributes. This assists the user in quickly locating objects that meet specificcriteria from within large, complex data sets.VEE provides a quantitative, consistent, and repeatable methodology to evaluateinformation visualization components and their environments. Our approach toevaluating the visualization of complex data relies on both computer software andan understanding of the human cognitive process. By quantifying the usability ofvisualization components and systems, the overall value to commanders in the fieldis that they are presented with information as opposed to raw data.The proposed work will result in 1) A Case Study methodology with the ability toevaluate a wide range of information visualization components and environments,2) the InfoSlider: A new information visualization component, 3) reuse of theInfoSlider Java class for integration into existing analysis and visualizationapplications, such as JVIEW, and 4) a proof-of-concept, case study evaluation, ofthe InfoSlider using VEE. The visualization evaluation methodology and the dynamically configurable displaytechnologies described in this proposal ha
