Vesper: Visualising species archives (2014)
Journal Article
Graham, M., & Kennedy, J. (2014). Vesper: Visualising species archives. Ecological Informatics, 24, 132-147. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecoinf.2014.08.004

Vesper (Visual Exploration of SPEcies-referenced Repositories) is a tool that visualises Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A) datasets, and is aimed at reducing the amount of time and effort expended by biologists to ascertain the quality of data they are gen...

VIPER: a visualisation tool for exploring inheritance inconsistencies in genotyped pedigrees (2012)
Journal Article
Paterson, T., Graham, M., Kennedy, J., & Law, A. (2012). VIPER: a visualisation tool for exploring inheritance inconsistencies in genotyped pedigrees. BMC Bioinformatics, 13/8, https://doi.org/10.1186/1471-2105-13-S8-S5

Pedigree genotype datasets are used for analysing genetic inheritance and to map genetic markers and traits. Such datasets consist of hundreds of related animals genotyped for thousands of genetic markers and invariably contain multiple errors in bot...

Visualising errors in animal pedigree genotype data (2011)
Journal Article
Graham, M., Kennedy, J., Paterson, T., & Law, A. (2011). Visualising errors in animal pedigree genotype data. Computer Graphics Forum, 30, 1011-1020. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1467-8659.2011.01950.x

Genetic analysis of a breeding animal population involves determining the inheritance pattern of genotypes for multiple genetic markers across the individuals in the population pedigree structure. However, experimental pedigree genotype data invariab... Read More about Visualising errors in animal pedigree genotype data.

A survey of multiple tree visualisation. (2010)
Journal Article
Graham, M., & Kennedy, J. (2010). A survey of multiple tree visualisation. Information Visualization, 9, 235-252. https://doi.org/10.1057/ivs.2009.29

This paper summarises the state-of-the-art in multiple tree visualisations. It discusses the spectrum of current representation techniques used on single trees, pairs of trees and finally multiple trees, in order to identify which representations are...

Visual Exploration of Alternative Taxonomies through Concepts (2007)
Journal Article
Graham, M., & Kennedy, J. (2007). Visual Exploration of Alternative Taxonomies through Concepts. Ecological Informatics, 2, 248-261. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecoinf.2007.07.004

A graphical user interface is presented that allows users of taxonomic data to explore concept relationships between conflicting but related taxonomic classifications. Ecological analyses that use taxonomic metadata depend on accurate naming of spe... Read More about Visual Exploration of Alternative Taxonomies through Concepts.

Exploring multiple trees through DAG representations (2007)
Journal Article
Graham, M., & Kennedy, J. (2007). Exploring multiple trees through DAG representations. IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, 13, 1294-1301. https://doi.org/10.1109/TVCG.2007.70556

We present a Directed Acyclic Graph visualisation designed to allow interaction with a set of multiple classification trees, specifically to find overlaps and differences between groups of trees and individual trees. The work is motivated by the need... Read More about Exploring multiple trees through DAG representations.

Novel visualisation techniques for working with multiple, overlapping classification hierarchies (2002)
Journal Article
Graham, M., Watson, M. F., & Kennedy, J. (2002). Novel visualisation techniques for working with multiple, overlapping classification hierarchies. Taxon, 51, 351-358

A Java-based program is presented that provides a visualisation tool for display of and comparison between classification hierarchies. Taxa, or groups of taxa, can be tracked across multiple, overlapping classifications. Recognition of congruence and...
