Abstract : We present a systematic overview of the state-of-the art in research at the intersection of interactive displays and visualization. As the access to and analysis of information is becoming increasingly important anywhere and at any time, researchers have begun to investigate the role of interactive displays as data analysis platforms. Visualization applications play a crucial role in data analysis and development of dedicated systems and tools for small to large interactive displays to support such application contexts is underway. Researchers have investigated how to support data analysis with visualizations with dedicated interaction modalities such as touch, tangibles, or pens; have developed and studied applications for interactive displays such as tabletops or large wall displays; have studied the support of collaborative analysis around interactive displays; and provided toolkits and guidelines for writing software and designing a technical setup for data analysis with visualizations on interactive displays. We contribute a systematic and quantitative assessment of the literature from 10 different venues, an open repository of papers, and a code-set that can be used to categorize the research space. Our work points out that research has so far largely focused on the development of interaction techniques, for multi-touch tabletop devices, and 2D spatial and abstract visualizations.
