The Effects Of Latency On 3d Interactive Data Visualizations, Allen Korenevsky 2016 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

The Effects Of Latency On 3d Interactive Data Visualizations, Allen Korenevsky

Master's Theses and Project Reports

Interactive data visualizations must respond fluidly to user input to be effective, or so we assume. In fact it is unknown exactly how fast a visualization must run to present every facet within a dataset. An engineering team with limited resources is left with intuition and estimates to determine if their application performs sufficiently well.

This thesis studies how latency affects users' comprehension of data visualizations, specifically 3D geospatial visualizations with large data sets. Subjects used a climate visualization showing temperatures spanning from the 19th to the 21st century to answer multiple choice questions. Metrics like their eye movements, time ...


Anex: Automated Network Exploitation Through Penetration Testing, Eric Francis Dazet 2016 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Anex: Automated Network Exploitation Through Penetration Testing, Eric Francis Dazet

Master's Theses and Project Reports

Cyber attacks are a growing concern in our modern world, making security evaluation a critical venture. Penetration testing, the process of attempting to compromise a computer network with controlled tests, is a proven method of evaluating a system's security measures. However, penetration tests, and preventive security analysis in general, require considerable investments in money, time, and labor, which can cause them to be overlooked. Alternatively, automated penetration testing programs are used to conduct a security evaluation with less user effort, lower cost, and in a shorter period of time than manual penetration tests. The trade-off is that automated penetration ...

Comparative Study Of Dimension Reduction Approaches With Respect To Visualization In 3-Dimensional Space, Pooja Chenna

Master of Science in Computer Science Theses

In the present big data era, there is a need to process large amounts of unlabeled data and find some patterns in the data to use it further. If data has many dimensions, it is very hard to get any insight of it. It is possible to convert high-dimensional data to low-dimensional data using different techniques, this dimension reduction is important and makes tasks such as classification, visualization, communication and storage much easier. The loss of information should be less while mapping data from high-dimensional space to low-dimensional space. Dimension reduction has been a significant problem in many fields as ...
