Mohamed, R. and Ferguson, J.D. and MacCormick, A. and Elsweiler, D. (2004) Developing bulletin board visualizations. In: Proceedings of the IADIS International Conference on Web Based Communities, 2004-03-24 - 2004-03-26, Lisbon, Portugal.
Prevalent text-based representations within online communities and bulletin boards often make it difficult to contextualise the activity and interactions that are taking place. Visualisation techniques have been successfully applied in a range of domains to augment and enhance existing communication technologies such as bulletin boards. This paper presents a new approach to visualising bulletin board activity: BulB. The use of BulB visualisations enables users to gain an overall picture of bulletin board activity and develop an understanding of the overall interaction context.
