The increasing power of computer, simulation and sensor technologies enables us to produce and store data at ever growing rates. Nevertheless, in virtually every application area, data has no value in itself: In very large amounts, data actually hides the important information and makes information more and more difficult to acquire. Decision makers and analysts are often confronted with vast amounts of complex, seemingly inconsistent or incomplete data, which are derived from a number of heterogeneous sources. The strategic effort of Fraunhofer IGD is pursued in collaboration with other national and international experts in this area. The recent Workshop on Visual Analytics was jointly organized with Prof. Keim, University of Konstanz and received endorsement by Jim Thomas, PNNL, who is head of the extensive Visual Analytics efforts in the United States.
