Visual Analytics of hierarchical data

Master degree thesis opportunity at Spotfire Sweden
Effective immediately Spotfire AB in Göteborg has the opportunity to offer two skilled students an interesting and challenging master degree thesis opportunity (20p).

Spotfire has developed a highly interactive data analytics platform, Spotfire DXP, using the Microsoft .Net framework. Spotfire is now interested in investigating different possibilities for enabling end users to analyze hierarchical data. The evolution of XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 and the wide spread usage of XML, has made it more interesting than ever to analyze hierarchical data.

The thesis research will involve an investigation of how to visualize and query hierarchical data interactively. The desired outcome is a suggestion for how to enable the end user to work with hierarchical data as effective as tabular data can be analyzed in Spotfire DXP today.

Expected content of the research
We expect that the following will be part of the work involved in the research:
• Investigation of existing technologies for visualizing and querying large hierarchical data bases.
• Investigation of suitable data structures for building an interactive visualization environment for hierarchical data
• Implement a prototype that visualizes hierarchical data
• Validate that the prototype can be used for analysis of hierarchical data

Expected student background
We anticipate that the work involved in the research will require a strong background in Computer Science and in Human Computer Interaction Research.

The work involved will require good knowledge in:
• Data visualization
• Algorithms
• Programming (Java and C#)
• Usability studies

Work location
The work will be performed at Spotfires offices in Göteborg, Sweden
