This half-day workshop, sponsored by SIG/VIS, will provide a succinct introduction to visual research methods and then focus attention on visual data analysis. The workshop will commence with an overview of epistemological issues and different approaches to collecting and analyzing visual data. Five different techniques of analyzing visual data will be introduced and practiced during the workshop. Each analytical technique will be discussed to reveal its disciplinary roots, epistemological and ontological commitments, and application process. Workshop participants will then have an opportunity to practice the techniques and to talk with others about the data analysis process. The workshop is intended for scholars, students and practitioners who are planning a research project with visual data, those who have visual datasets that need to be analyzed and those interested in exploring visual research methods.
