National Initiatives


MapMuxing - Multi-dimensional Map Multiplexing. (2014-2018) Funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR). In collaboration with IGN (Institut National de l'Information Géographique et Forestière): 208Keuros/499Keuros. Participants: Emmanuel Pietriga (PI), Caroline Appert, Olivier Chapuis, María-Jesús Lobo. http://mapmuxing.ign.fr

The project explores novel ways of combining different maps and data layers into a single cartographic representation, and investigates novel interaction techniques for navigating in it. The project aims at going beyond the traditional pan & zoom and overview+detail interface schemes, and at designing and evaluating novel cartographic visualizations that rely on high-quality generalization, i.e., the simplification of geographic data to make it legible at a given map scale, and symbol specification.

Collaborations with other French Research Organizations

CorTextViz. (2015-2016) Funded by INRA (Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique). In collaboration with project-team Aviz at Inria Saclay (Jean-Daniel Fekete) and INRA (Jean-Philippe Cointet, Guy Riba). Interactive visualization of medium-scale multi-level networks, supporting data storytelling on wall displays. Participants: André Spritzer, Emmanuel Pietriga (PI), Anastasia Bezerianos.
