The Dialogue Explorer is a novel vertical timeline information-visualization technique developed to support the analysis of human-computer dialogue data. The technique uses combined linked views including distorted views to effectively communicate the timing of dialogue events while presenting text in such a manner that it is easily readable. A prototype has been implemented and tested to demonstrate the technique’s effectiveness for supporting exploration and revealing previously unsuspected patterns.
