In this article, the authors therefore propose a generalization of traditional bar charts and x-y plots, which allows the visualization of large amounts of data. The basic idea is to use the pixels within the bars to present detailed information of the data records. The so-called pixel bar charts retain the intuitiveness of traditional bar charts while allowing very large data sets to be visualized in an effective way. It is shown that, for an effective pixel placement, a complex optimization problem has to be solved. The authors then present an algorithm which efficiently solves the problem. The application to a number of real-world ecommerce data sets shows the wide applicability and usefulness of this new idea, and a comparison to other well-known visualization techniques (parallel coordinates and spiral techniques) shows a number of clear advantages.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Dayal, Umeshwar</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/36"/> <dc:contributor>Hsu, Meichun</dc:contributor> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/5464/1/pbc01.pdf"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T15:55:37Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>Pixel Bar Charts : A Visualization Technique for Very Large Multi-Attribute Data Sets</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Keim, Daniel A.</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Hsu, Meichun</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Hao, Ming C.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Hao, Ming C.</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dcterms:issued>2002</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Information visualization 2 (2002), 1, pp. 20-34</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/36"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/5464"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/5464/1/pbc01.pdf"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
