Abstract:In this paper, we present a prototypical system for visually factoring historical immigration flows in U.S., with a goal to reveal multiple immigration factors and their interactions simultaneously. Our visualization system contains three aspects of immigration, which are historical trends, immigration flows and immigrants' details, involving the area chart, the choropleth map and the bipartite chart. In particular, we design a novel factor-driven bipartite chart for presenting both immigration flows and detailed information to get more informative representations. We cover different aspects of the data to help users get a step-by-step understanding of the immigration of U.S.. Based on the preliminary user study, we demonstrate the utility of our visual design in assisting users to gain more in-depth understanding about the complex factors (e.g., geographic, ethnic, etc.) in the immigration issues. This design can be potentially used for discovering other social issues which involve complex factors and interactions.
