Visual exploration and analysis of provenance data

SFB/Transregio 161 Project D03

Project description

The research conducted in this project focused on leveraging provenance for quantitative visual data exploration and visually exploring large volumes of provenance data. Further details are available on the website of the overarching Collaborative Research on Quantitative Methods for Visual Computing (SFB-TRR 161).
