Active research

ChronoViz is in active development by Adam Fouse, in the Distributed Cognition and Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory at the University of California, San Diego.

When you start ChronoViz, you will be asked whether we can record your interactions. The data recorded is anonymized and includes movement (in time) through the data, where you create annotations, and how you configure visualizations. These logs are automatically uploaded on a weekly basis. You can change the settings for this data logging in the ChronoViz Preferences window.
