UW Interactive Data Lab
The UW Interactive Data Lab began its life as the Stanford Visualization Group, founded in the late 1990s by Prof. Pat Hanrahan. Early Stanford projects included the Polaris system, now commercialized as Tableau Software. Their projects include new languages, theoretical models, exploratory analysis tools, and design tools for interactive visualization, techniques for representing uncertainty, and perceptual experiments to assess how well visualizations work.
