Abstract

This paper proposes a new 3D visualization tool based on Cubic Gantt Charts. This new tool has co-browsing functionality that allows multiple users to simultaneously see the visualization results of Cubic Gantt Charts and supports VR goggles. Therefore, it makes possible collaborative immersive visual data analytics. In addition, this new visualization tool has a recording function that stores users’ visualization activities such as translation, rotation and zooming, and replay function that shows past activities to current users later. These recording and replaying functions are significant for multiple users to analyze data collaboratively. This paper introduces these functions and explains how they work for collaborative immersive visual data analytics.
