Data Visualization is common in every day communication on-line and in print media. As consumers shift to mobile devices for their daily information consumption on the web, we are faced with the challenge of designing new interfaces and interactions that work with these smaller screens. While Responsive Web Design helps alleviate some of these challenges, data visualization brings some additional challenges to the table having to do with specifically displaying and interacting with information.
MobileVis aims to provide both: A collection of examples (and discussion) of data visualization use on mobile devices as well as a collection of patterns that we identify from these examples.
