Abstract

We report the approach and results to solve the VAST 2014 Mini-Challenge 2 (MC2). Based on the commercial interactive visualization software Tableau, we follow the notional model of sensemaking loop for analysis of the massive multi-dimensional, multi-source and time-varying data sets in MC2. Our findings show that we can effectively identify the commonalities and anomalies to understand the GAStech employees' daily life.
