Innovations in Visualization Laboratory Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Profile of the Research Laboratory

The Innovations in Visualization Laboratory (InnoVis) was founded and is directed by Dr. Sheelagh Carpendale. The members of the lab investigate innovations in the area of Information Visualization and Human Computer Interaction. Active research topics in Information Visualization include the exploration of effective use of display space, and navigation, exploration, and manipulation of information spaces. In the context of Human Computer Interaction members of the lab study how to best support collaborative work on large displays. The lab is equipped with multiple large displays: a custom built wall and large tabletop display, various touch-sensitive SMART boards, and a diamond touch display. In recent years one PostDoc, several PhD and Master’s students have worked in the lab on various projects.
