"ViCo: A Metric for the Complexity of Information Visualizations";
in: "Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Theory and Application of Diagrams (Diagrams 2002)",
Information Visualization produces a visual representation of
abstract data in order to facilitate a deeper level of understanding of the data
under investigation. This paper introduces ViCo, a metric for assessing
Information Visualization complexity. The proposed metric allows for the
measurement of Information Visualization complexity with respect to tasks and
users. The algorithm for developing such a metric for any chosen collection of
visualizations is described in general and then applied to two examples for
purposes of illustration.
