Abstract [en]

When attempting to visualize large amounts of data a question arises on how one is to display all of it while avoiding to confuse the viewer. The predicament at hand is one of balancing a loss of information and a loss of comprehension. The objective of this thesis is, through the means of an interactive visualization; to find a well proportioned solution to this problem. The method used is genius design instead of the more favoured user-centred design. The problem is tackled by the use of theories from Human-Computer Interaction and Information Visualization resulting in a design largely influenced by a principle of Ben Shneiderman. The result is a thorough design based on known theories and my own ideas. Although untested in practice, the approach should be considered if faced with the same problem in the future
