Visualization research develops new techniques to present large data collections in new insightful ways. The human eye, human interaction and design play a key role in this research.
The goal of this field is to develop new systems that users can use to discover patterns and outliers in the data that without the aid of the human mind are very difficult to find. Users can use these systems to analyze and optimize their systems significantly faster compared to traditional analysis methods.
The section projects show a list of research programs where we are currently working on. Most of these projects are in collaboration with companies and other research groups within Mathematics & Computer Science. The section "Software" contains a list of visualization tool that you can try out yourself.

Want to test different visualization for yourself? Here is a list of applications that you can try for free.
Ever wondered why your hard disk is full? Or what directory is taking up most of the space? When using conventional disk browsing tools, such as Windows Explorer, these questions may be hard to answer. With SequoiaView however, they can be answered almost immediately. SequoiaView uses a visualization technique called cushion treemaps to provide you with a single picture of the entire contents of your hard drive. You can use it to locate those large files that you haven't accessed in one year, or to quickly locate the largest picture files on your drive. Click here to download the latest version of SequoiaView.

Fraqtive Touch Version
For the Imaginary 2016 event in Eindhoven, the Visualization group adapted the popular MandelBrot Fraqtive application to support multi touch interaction. The software can both be downloaded for Windows and Linux. The source code of the project can be downloaded here.
