Featured Project
Towards Design Principles for Visual Analytics in Operations Contexts

The Meridian system was designed for operations engineers at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Engineers using the system are tasked with selecting a heading at which to park the rover and an overpassing satellite to connect to in order to maximize the amount of data transferred back to Earth.

Through research, design, implementation, and informal evaluation of our new tool, we developed principles to inform the design of visual analytics systems in operations contexts. Learn more.
