SVEN: An Alternative Storyline Framework for Dynamic Graph Visualization
The world is a dynamic place, so when we use graphs to help understand real world problems the structure of such graphs inevitably changes over time. Understanding this change is important, but often challenging. Techniques for general purpose dynamic graph visualizations generally fall into one of two broad categories: animation or timeline based techniques . Simple approaches using animation or small multiples experience challenges with change blindness and “preserving the user’s mental map” . Storyline visualization techniques [5, 7] hold promise, though these techniques were not originally designed as general purpose solutions for dynamic graph visualization.
