About Us

The repository:
The Visual Analytics Benchmarks Repository contains resources to improve the evaluation of visual analytics technology. Benchmarks contains datasets and tasks, as well as materials describing the uses of those benchmarks (the results of analysis, contest entries, controlled experiment materials etc.) Most benchmarks contain ground truth described in a solution provided with the benchmark, allowing accuracy metrics to be computed.

Looking for datasets to download? See the LIST OF BENCHMARKS

How you can contribute:
To contribute new Benchmarks or suggest the addition of new examples of use of the existing Benchmarks: Please contact Catherine Plaisant

This repository replaces and extends the Information Visualization Benchmarks Repository started in 2003, with datasets from the InfoVis Contest. Starting in 2006 the VAST Contests and later the VAST Challenges which took place at the IEEE VAST symposium provided the 1st set of Benchmark with ground truth and solutions. Full credit and provenance information is given separately for each benchmark.
