We present a systematic overview of the state-of-the art in research at the intersection between interactive displays and visualization. Because the access to and analysis of information is becoming increasingly important anywhere and at any time, researchers have begun to investigate the role of interactive displays as data analysis platforms. Visualization applications play a crucial role in data analysis and development of dedicated systems and tools for small to large interactive displays to support such application contexts is underway. We contribute a systematic and quantitative assessment of the literature from ten different venues, an open repository of papers, and a code-set that can be used to categorize the research space.


Dieser Artikel enthält eine systematische Übersicht über den aktuellen Stand der Forschung zum Thema Visualisierung und interaktive Oberflächen. Der Zugang zu und die Analyse von Informationen wird in den verschiedensten Situationen zunehmend wichtig. Als Konsequenz haben Wissenschaftler begonnen, die Rolle von interaktiven Bildschirmen für die Datenanalysie zu erforschen und neue Systeme und Werkzeuge für kleine und große interaktive Bildschirme zu entwickeln. Wir tragen eine systematische und quantitative Auseinandersetzung mit der wachsenden Literatur bei und stellen unsere Datenbasis frei zugänglich online. Darüber hinaus kann unsere Sammlung von Codes dazu benutzt werden, weitere Arbeiten des Forschungsbereichs in der Zukunft zu kategorisieren.

Keywords: Visualization; interactive displays; survey
