So far there are no guidelines that indicate which of these visualization methods better display trends in time series for a given canvas. Assuming that the main information in a time series is its overall trend, we propose an algorithm that automatically picks the visualization method that reveals this trend best. This is achieved by measuring the visual consistency between the trend curve represented by a LOESS fit and the trend described by a scatter plot or a line graph. To measure the consistency between our algorithm and user choices, we performed an empirical study with a series of controlled experiments that show a large correspondence. In a factor analysis we furthermore demonstrate that various visual and data factors have effects on the preference for a certain type of visualization.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Han, Fubo</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/36"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/38549"/> <dc:creator>Deussen, Oliver</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Chen, Baoquan</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-04-21T09:11:45Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Zhu, Lifeng</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Wang, Yunhai</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-04-21T09:11:45Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Chen, Baoquan</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Wang, Yunhai</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2018-02-01</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Deussen, Oliver</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/36"/> <dcterms:title>Line Graph or Scatter Plot? : Automatic Selection of Methods for Visualizing Trends in Time Series</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
