Understanding Connected Data through Visualization

Edges Room

Connected Data wants to be visualized. There are various options  data-scientists, application-developers, and end-users have at their disposal. Finding the best option for your specific use-case is not always easy. There are simple options that can help you quickly get some results, but the possibilities become endless, as soon as you add sophisticated diagramming solutions and toolkits to your toolbox.

In this presentation, you will learn about “yFiles”, which is a family of software development kits for the visualization of graphs, diagrams, and networks. Most developers who know it, consider it the most complete, most sophisticated diagramming solution available. Hundreds of companies worldwide use it to create highly specialized, customized white-label diagramming integrations for their applications.

This talk tries to shed some light on the question, why instead of going with a prebuilt solution, they choose to create and implement a unique user experience and when you should do that, too.

You will learn what tools you can use to get the most out of connected data visualizations:

* Why you should not always visualize connections in your data as connections in a diagram

* When simply getting the graph on the screen is not enough

* Why detailed custom item visualization makes a difference

* How customized interactivity can improve the user experience of your apps

Join the talk and discover the possibilities you get with a sophisticated diagramming toolkit. You will see visualization and interaction options that you probably haven’t even thought of, before, and learn how to create great applications for creating, displaying, understanding, and interacting with your connected data.
