|Title:||VAST 2007 Contest - Blue Iguanadon|
|Published:||October 30, 2007|
|Abstract:||Visual analytics experts realize that one effective way to push the field forward and to develop metrics for measuring the performance of various visual analytics components is to hold an annual competition. The second Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST) contest was held in conjunction with the 2007 IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) VAST Symposium. In this contest participants were to use visual analytic tools to explore a large heterogeneous data collection to construct a scenario and find evidence buried in the data of illegal and terrorist activities that were occurring. A synthetic data set was made available as well as tasks. In this paper we describe some of the advances we have made from the first competition held in 2006.|
