Abstract

Visualizations on the web are used to communicate information to a wide range of audiences. However, there exists no widely accepted method for visualization creators to understand how an audience engages with their work. To address this, we propose using passive evaluation, where user interaction with visualizations is logged, and later explored by the creator. ReVisIt is a tool that captures user interactions with a visualization, processes them, and displays them in a dashboard. To evaluate ReVisIt, we conducted several interviews with visualization creators. We concluded that a tool like ReVisIt would be valuable to creators, and there are several opportunities for future work in this area.
