Firework: Information Visualization on movie

  1. 1. FireworkGlobal Movie Rating / PopularityVisualizationTeamFan Guo  Hao Zeng  Ian Lin  Sylvia Lai  Varoot Phasuthadol
  2. 2. Introducing Firework• What is Firework – A visualization of movie data that helps user identify major trends based on year, country of production as well as genre of the movie• What are visualized – Audience reception of a movie has two facets: • Popularity: How many people watch the movie • Rating: how good they think the movie is. – Country, year, genre
  3. 3. Questions and User• Who will be interested – Movie distributors trying to import movie in U.S., want to know the audiences’ appetites• What questions we try to answer – How the popularity and rating of movies differ from one country to another? – How do genres within each country differ from one another in terms of popularity and rating? – What is the average movie trend of a specific country from 1961 to 2011?
  4. 4. Data Gathering & Processing• Source: IMDB• Movies: from 1961 – 2011• Popularity: Average # of votes• Rating: Average individual rating• Country: Movie number top 50 (except US)• Genre: Combined IMDB genres
  5. 5. Demo
  6. 6. Evaluation
  7. 7. Evaluation• User Test – From 12-14, Dec. – Recruited 10 users• Scenario: a film distributor who wants to import movies from other countries to US• 6 tasks
  8. 8. What works well• Firework: intuitive transition between the overview perspective and fireworks• Time slider: intuitive navigation
  9. 9. Findings• Finding1: The current implementation for firework needs improvement – No labels for genre. – Assume dots are clickable. – Confused why the grey out dot is clickable – Hard to close the firework
  10. 10. Findings• Finding2: Better labeling is needed for main view and trend view. – The meaning of the dot size. – The label and legend is not obvious.
  11. 11. Findings• Finding3: Locating desired countries was not intuitive as we expected – The country filtered was not used frequently – Search function isn’t obvious
  12. 12. Future Work• Comparison genres across countries – Allowing multiple fireworks• Dot size & overlap – Zoom function• Two views – cause mental effort to interpret the visualization• Explore country/genre data point – The ability to see the movie list under each point
  13. 13. Q&A
  14. 14. Thanks.
