Data Illustrator is a system that helps graphic designers created data-driven visualizations and infographics without the need to do any programming. More specifically, it is a vector editing tool for creating data visualizations and infographics. Graphic designers can use Data Illustrator to craft their own visualizations by repeating and styling shapes with data-driven rules. The tool supports the creation of expressive, flexible, and parametrically defined visualizations without the need to program them.
At the Information Interfaces Lab, computing technologies are developed that help people take advantage of information to enrich their lives. The lab group develops ways to help people understand information via user interface design, information visualization, peripheral awareness techniques and embodied agents. The goal is to help people make better judgments by learning from all the information available to them.
