Novel visualisation techniques for working with multiple, overlapping classification hierarchies

Journal Article
Graham, M., Watson, M. F., & Kennedy, J. (2002)
Novel visualisation techniques for working with multiple, overlapping classification hierarchies. Taxon, 51, 351-358
A Java-based program is presented that provides a visualisation tool for display of and comparison between classification hierarchies. Taxa, or groups of taxa, can be tracked ...

Pattern browsing and query adjustment for the exploratory analysis and cooperative visualisation of microarray time-course data.

Conference Proceeding
Craig, P., Cannon, A., Kennedy, J., & Kukla, R. (2010)
Pattern browsing and query adjustment for the exploratory analysis and cooperative visualisation of microarray time-course data. In Y. Luo (Ed.), Cooperative Design, Visualization, and Engineering, 199-206. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-16066-0_30
This paper presents work to support collaborative visualisation and data analysis in the microarray time-series explorer (MaTSE) software. We introduce a novel visualisation c...

Scientific names are ambiguous as identifiers for biological taxa: their context and definition are required for accurate data integration

Conference Proceeding
Kennedy, J., Kukla, R., & Paterson, T. (2005)
Scientific names are ambiguous as identifiers for biological taxa: their context and definition are required for accurate data integration. In B. Ludaescher, & L. Raschid (Eds.), Data Integration in the Life Sciences, 80-95. https://doi.org/10.1007/11530084_8
Biologists use scientific names to label the organisms described in their data; however, these names are not unique identifiers for taxonomic entities. Alternative taxonomic c...

A methodology for composing well-defined character descriptions.

Report
Paterson, T., Cannon, A., Raguenaud, C., Russell, G., Armstrong, K. E., MacDonald, S. M., …Kennedy, J. (2003)
A methodology for composing well-defined character descriptions
Taxonomy has been described as “the science of documenting biodiversity”, which involves collecting, naming, describing, identifying and classifying specimens of organisms (Ke...

The Prometheus Taxonomic Model: a practical approach to representing multiple classification.

Journal Article
Pullan, M. R., Watson, M. F., Kennedy, J., Raguenaud, C., & Hyam, R. (2000)
The Prometheus Taxonomic Model: a practical approach to representing multiple classification. Taxon, 49, 55-75
A model for representing taxonomic data in a flexible and dynamic system capable of handling and comparing multiple simultaneous classifications is presented. The Prometheus T...

MacDonald, S. M., Raguenaud, C., Pullan, M. R., Kennedy, J., Russell, G., & Watson, M. F. The Prometheus II Description Model: an objective approach to representing taxonomic descriptions
A model for improving the storage and communication of plant descriptions is presented. The model is flexible and yet reduces the ambiguity often present in text descriptions....

Telling Tales: Narratives Of Classification And Control In The Design Of Taxonomic Software.

Conference Proceeding
Turner, S., Turner, P., Raguenaud, C., & Kennedy, J. (2002)
Telling Tales: Narratives Of Classification And Control In The Design Of Taxonomic Software. In Proceedings of Design Research Society Conference: Common Ground, September, 2002
This paper draws on concepts from the structuralist analysis of narrative to explore aspects of the role of stories in the small group design process. A brief review of releva...

Visualisation to Aid Biodiversity Studies through Accurate Taxonomic Reconciliation.

Conference Proceeding
Graham, M., Craig, P., & Kennedy, J. (2008)
Visualisation to Aid Biodiversity Studies through Accurate Taxonomic Reconciliation. In W. A. Gray, K. G. Jeffery, & J. Shao (Eds.), Proceedings of British National Conference on Database Systems: Sharing Data, Information and Knowledge, 280-291. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-540-70504-8_29
All aspects of organismal biology rely on the accurate identification of specimens described and observed. This is particularly important for ecological surveys of biodiversit...

Using a persistent system to construct a customised interface to an ecological db.

Conference Proceeding
Barclay, P. J., Fraser, C., & Kennedy, J. (1993)
Using a persistent system to construct a customised interface to an ecological db. In R. Cooper (Ed.), Interfaces to Database Systems: Proceedings of the First International Workshop on Interfaces to Database Systems (IDS92), Glasgow, 1-3 July 1992, 225-243
New applications of information technology have increasingly sophisticated user interface requirements. Such interfaces are sometimes highly application specific and therefore...

Conference Proceeding
Barclay, P. J., & Kennedy, J. (2000)
A dual-level presentation model for developing user-interfaces. In V. Gesu, S. Levialdi, & L. Tarantino (Eds.), Proceedings of the workshop on Advanced Visual Interfaces, 151-154
The visualisation of hierarchical information sets has been a staple of Information Visualisation since the field came into being in the early 1990’s. However, at present, sup...
