Abstract: Visual analytics is not an emerging topic anymore. Domain experts are increasingly convinced of the potential of visual analytics in the big data era as we move from basic to applied research in this area. We are working with users in several application fields, including medical doctors, climate researchers, business analysts and security analysts. In any of these domains, visual analytics solutions not only have to create user-, data- and task-centered visualizations: they use automated techniques and have to explain results to domain experts to allow a reasonable analytical discourse between human and visual analytics system. In this talk, I will discuss the intersection of visual analytics and user-centered design using several examples from applied research projects with domain experts. My talk will also cover current research topics in applied visual analytics taking a look forward to the role of visual analytics in these domains.
