Southern Ohio Chapter of the Association for Information Science Presents Ray Daley on Data Visualization Technology, 7:00 p.m. Thursday, May 18, 2000, LEXIS-NEXIS, Dayton, OH.

Ray Daley will discuss the Why, What, and How of current information visualization techniques. Scientific and business visualization have had a very useful existence for many years. Is there a useful visual user interface for information retrieval? We will look at the basic attributes of visualization including data mining, presentation, and manipulation. Examples and live demonstrations will be included and we will finish with a discussion of where information visualization can be used and when an answer, or a good relevance ranked set of documents is better.
