Redeeming pedigree data with an interactive error cleaning visualisation.

Conference Proceeding
Graham, M., Kennedy, J., Paterson, T., & Law, A. (2012)
Redeeming pedigree data with an interactive error cleaning visualisation. In Proceedings of Advanced Visual Interfaces 2012, 741-744. https://doi.org/10.1145/2254556.2254698
We describe a visual data cleansing application for pedigree genotype data, which is used to redeem otherwise unusable pedigree data sets. Biologists and bioinformaticians dyn...

Visual comparison and exploration of natural history collections

Conference Proceeding

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 conceptual data language to describe a database and its interface.

Conference Proceeding
Mitchell, K., Kennedy, J., & Barclay, P. J. (1995)
Using a conceptual data language to describe a database and its interface. In C. Goble, & J. Keane (Eds.), Advances in Databases: Proceedings [of the] 13th British National Conference on Database - BNCOD13, 1995, 101-119. doi:10.1007/BFb0000543
We propose a conceptual approach to defining interfaces to databases which uses the features of a fully object oriented data language to specify interface objects combined wit...

Ontology-Driven Automated Generation of Data Entry Interfaces to Databases

Conference Proceeding
Cannon, A., Kennedy, J. B., Paterson, T., & Watson, M. F. (2004)
Ontology-Driven Automated Generation of Data Entry Interfaces to Databases. In H. Williams, & L. Mackinnon (Eds.), Key Technologies for Data Management; Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 150-164. doi:10.1007/978-3-540-27811-5_15

Conference Proceeding
Bach, B., Kerracher, N., Hall, K. W., Carpendale, S., Kennedy, J., & Henry Riche, N. (2016)
Telling stories about dynamic networks with graph comics. In Proceedings of the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI'16), (1-13). https://doi.org/10.1145/2858036.2858387
In this paper, we explore graph comics as a medium to communicate changes in dynamic networks. While previous research has focused on visualizing dynamic networks for data exp...
