Abstract

Dynamic processes frequently occur in many applications. Visualizations of dynamically evolving data, for example as part of the data analysis, are typically restricted to a cumulative static view or an animation/sequential view. Both methods have their benefits and are often complementary in their use. In this article, we present a hybrid model that combines the two techniques. This is accomplished by 2.5D drawings which are calculated in an incremental way. The method has been evaluated on collaboration networks.
