A Survey on Narrative Visualization

Visualization is commonly used to represent data in intuitive and easily understandable visual forms to facilitate knowledge discovery. However, when data becomes more and more complex, visualization techniques also become more and more sophisticated. In addition, cutting-edge visual analytics systems often involve both advanced data mining and visualization techniques, and a sequence of data mining and interactive visualizations steps is needed to reveal hidden information in the data. All these recent developments make it difficult to present information and visualization results to ordinary users. Narrative visualization, which organizes information into stories and then conveys the stories using visual forms, shows great potential to address this issue. Narrative visualization connects a sequence of visual forms in a meaningful structure and tells the stories in an explorative and communicative visual style, which makes the information easier to understand and remember.
