The remarkable adoption of information visualization has triggered worldwide application from researchers, companies, governments, and news media. The public interest in visually rich infographics has raised questions of how best to present insights and what interactive capabilities enable engaging exploration, while maintaining comprehensibility. Government professionals find that compelling visual presentations inform policy making. At the same time researchers and corporate decision makers have increased expectations of how visual analytics can support important discoveries and business decisions. Our research community is racing to deal with complex data, rich questions, and large-scale data streams. This talk will present some success stories and suggest promising research directions.
