Visual Analysis for Graphs, Networks and Flows

  • Graphs and flow networks are important mathematical concepts that enable the modeling and analysis of a large variety of real world problems in different domains such as engineering, medicine or computer science. The number, sizes and complexities of those problems permanently increased during the last decades. This led to an increased demand of techniques that help domain experts in understanding their data and its underlying structure to enable an efficient analysis and decision making process. To tackle this challenge, this work presents several new techniques that utilize concepts of visual analysis to provide domain scientists with new visualization methodologies and tools. Therefore, this work provides novel concepts and approaches for diverse aspects of the visual analysis such as data transformation, visual mapping, parameter refinement and analysis, model building and visualization as well as user interaction. The presented techniques form a framework that enriches domain scientists with new visual analysis tools and help them analyze their data and gain insight from the underlying structures. To show the applicability and effectiveness of the presented approaches, this work tackles different applications such as networking, product flow management and vascular systems, while preserving the generality to be applicable to further domains.
