There are different issues with trust involved when working with domain experts to visualize their data. There may be limitations with the data that require special precautions, such as sensitivity or security limitations. It may have taken a lot of effort to collect or create the data so that a certain level of trust is required for the domain expert to share the data. At the same time, the domain expert needs to be able to trust in the final visualization results. This presentation discusses these issues with trust and what requirements for a theoretical foundation this results in. Furthermore, additional requirements are discussed for user interfaces and other elements within the visualization.


Presented at the Foundations of Data Visualization, Dagstuhl Seminar 18041, January 21-26, 2018.
