Information Design as Evaluation Tool and Interactions Generator

Manuel Humberto Parga, Mauricio Hernando Vargas, Juan José Arango

Abstract


For visualizing complex and multidimensional information, the idea is to create and evaluate an informatics tool, designed to ease the exploration, analysis and collective understanding of a given subject. This concept will help in the solution of design problems by facilitating collaborative work, sharing of representations, interactive explanations, shareholder’s information updates and tracking system changes and actions as an interactive timeline. From the elaboration of a framework for the visualization of complex and multidimensional information, the aim is to create and evaluate an informatics tool, designed to ease the exploration, analysis and collective understanding of a given subject, which will help in the solution of design problems in such subject. The framework aims to ease the collaborative work, having as a premise the possibility of sharing representations, translate points of views in different stakeholders, argument explanations, update conclusions that arises from changes in the system and register decisions or actions taken in a specific time.
