Uncertainty Visualization

GRIS conducts research for a variety of data types and related uncertainties in different application areas, e.g.,

  • Uncertainties about train delays and their impact on train trip planning
  • Temporal uncertainties in personal plans
  • Uncertainties in graphs and networks (like traffic or contact networks)
  • Uncertainties arising from the data collection (such as for hospital treatments)

We design novel interactive visualizations and analyze the impact of uncertainty visualization for decision making.

Uncertainty Visualization explained

Uncertainty Visualization focuses on the communication of uncertainty information about data and models in a visual way. It covers varying visualization techniques, depending on the type of the underlying uncertainty and the users’ expertise.
