Abstract

We explore the combination of smartwatches and a large interactive display to support visual data analysis. These two extremes of interactive surfaces are increasingly popular, but feature different characteristics---display and input modalities, personal/public use, performance, and portability.

With this demonstration, we present our conceptual framework and its implementation, which enables analysts to explore data items using both devices in combination. Building on a analysis scenario for convicted crimes in Baltimore, our demonstration gives an impression of how the device combination can allow users to develop complex insights more fluidly by leveraging the device roles.

Accompanying Demonstration to our Full Paper

This is the accompanying demonstration of our CHI 2018 full paper When David Meets Goliath: Combining Smartwatches with a Large Vertical Display for Visual Data Exploration. Please cite the full paper when referencing this work. During the ACM CHI 2018 conference, the demo will be shown on Monday evening (Apr 23).
