Point-based tree representation: A new approach for large hierarchies

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Space-filling layout techniques for tree representations are frequently used when the available screen space is small or the data set is large. In this paper, we propose a new approach to space-filling tree representations, which uses mechanisms from the point-based rendering paradigm. Additionally, helpful interaction techniques that tie in with our layout are presented. We will relate our new technique to established space-filling techniques along the lines of a newly developed classification and also evaluate it numerically using the measures of the ink-paper-ratio and overplotted
