By providing visual representation of data, visualization can help people carry out some tasks more effectively. Given a data set, however, there are have too many different visualization techniques, where each technique has many parameters to be tweaked. We are asking if it is possible to automatically design a visualization that is best suited to pursue a given task on given input data. We have developed a few techniques to achieve this goal for specific data sets including the selection of line chart or scatter plot for time-series data, a framework for aspect ratio selection, color assignment for scatterplots and a new sampling technique for multi-class scatterplots.
