VIBEVis is a team of Information Visualization researchers from MSR VIBE and beyond. We are interested in ways to display and interact with large amounts of data. We apply our work to task management, personal information management, software visualization, business visualization, community visualization, graph and tree visualization, entertainment, and visual analytics for homeland security.
Information Visualization (or InfoVis) is a research area dedicated to gaining insight by representing data visually. At Microsoft Research, the VIBEVis group broadly approaches:
- Core principles of data visualization
- Methods to build visualization toolkits and languages
- The application of visualization to problems both within and without Microsoft
We apply our work to diverse fields including task management, personal information management, graph and tree visualization, entertainment, and visual analytics for homeland security.
