Welcome to VisGuides


VisGuides is a democratic discussion forum about visualization guidelines. It welcomes all scientists, researchers, practitioners, designers, engineers, students, and users who are in interested in data visualization and visual analytics regardless of their background.

For a more comprehensive list of guidelines, please visit Visualization Guidelines Repository <visguides.repo.dbvis.de>. This forum complements the repository by enabling open, democratic, evidence-based discourses about visualization guidelines. The VisGuides platform enables us to share positive as well as the negative experience of using any guidelines; to identify any possible over-generalization, incompleteness, impreciseness, conflicts among guidelines, and conditions for successful applications; and to propose and discuss new or revised guidelines.

We particularly encourage all of us to pose questions, whether to seek advice or to challenge existing wisdom, while others, including over one thousand active researchers in the visualization, to answer questions and engage in discussions. We are certain that many will discover new research topics through such discourses.

We are sure that all of us will appreciate the discourses to be conducted in a scholarly and respectful manner. The VisGuides team will moderate the discussions. In cases where a post can be considered as unprofessional, we reserve the right to remove such comments. We will also be improving the categorization of discussion threads gradually when there are more active threads in this platform. If you have any suggestions or wish to raise any issues, please contact visguides@dbvis.inf.uni-konstanz.de

Thank you!

The VisGuides Team
