VisiTrend can help you build everything from simple dashboards to advanced user interfaces for any data setup and analysis task. We will tailor our designs to your requirements, utilizing our in-house APIs or 3rd party technologies as needed. Visualization is not just a matter of aesthetics; it is a science of human visual perception, and how it can be leveraged to reveal insights and communicate information. Our expertise in visualization is validated both by our clients, and our publications within established research communities, not by blog posts. We can offer the best-informed design for your project, and have the ability to implement it. Effective visual interfaces can do more than allow users to work with backend systems; they can enable users to understand data, explore information, find new questions to ask, discover new insights, evaluate hypotheses, and ultimately make better decisions. We can work with you to understand your particular requirements, and then design visual interfaces to meet them. Our solutions can be applied to multiple domains including, but not limited to, business intelligence, market research, scientific research, and financial analysis. Let’s get started.

User-friendly tools are often not powerful enough for in-depth analysis. Powerful tools are often not user friendly enough for effective analysis. Visualization can do more than report results: it can enable users to more intuitively interact with the underlying algorithms that generate those results. We design interactive visual analytics that serve as an interface for advanced analysis. Users can visualize their data, then interact directly with that visualization to guide analysis algorithms towards more meaningful results. This approach has several benefits. First and foremost, it makes advanced analysis techniques more intuitive and accessible. Effective visualization provides an initial understanding of the data and its distribution, motivates hypotheses, and provides context for determining what analysis to perform and where to focus it. Users can then interact directly with the visualization to apply algorithms to specific data subsets, monitor algorithm progress, and provide inputs to algorithms to guide them toward more meaningful results based on their interests. While automated analysis can efficiently find statistically significant results, humans ultimately determine what is or is not interesting. Enabling users to guide algorithms combines the complementary strengths of human intuition and machine learning to support more intuitive, efficient, and effective analysis. Involving users in the analysis process also provides a better understanding of the results, rather than forcing them to interpret “black box” output. Finally, visualization is natural medium for supporting collaboration. Visual interfaces can facilitate coordinated analysis and enable users to communicate, annotate data, and share findings.
VisiTrend designs applications that enable users to more effectively explore data, search for patterns, discover new relationships, identify causal dependencies, and perform predictive analysis. Our solutions provide greater insight into what questions to ask, which approaches to take, and ultimately what decisions to make to realize greater value. Let’s get started.
VisiTrend staff has extensive expertise in data mining, machine learning, artificial intelligence and related domains. We can design and develop algorithms for modeling, simulation, optimization, and data analysis. We can customize 3rd party APIs or custom engineer algorithms that meet your particular requirements. Let’s get started.
VisiTrend has extensive expertise in designing and developing collaborative software, as demonstrated by our publications in established research communities. We can help engineer a collaborative application for data analysis, or investigate opportunities to add collaborative capabilities to your existing applications. Collaboration can help users share insights during analysis, expediting knowledge discovery and problem solving. From a design perspective, collaborative tools present particular challenges; the user’s creative and collaborative needs must be addressed in a balanced fashion, and data and metadata must be shared between multiple, distributed workstations. VisiTrend staff have experience developing both frontend and backend components of collaborative frameworks: we have designed visual interfaces to support collaboration, and have engineered backend supports such as shared data models and routing algorithms. We will work with you to understand your analysis problem and identify potential points of collaboration in your workflow. We will then design a solution that optimally supports cooperative analysis given your work practices. Let’s get started.
