Workflows for visualizing data mining results

Finn Årup Nielsen

AbstractI review methods and tools for visualizations in neuroimaging as well as point to some of the problems with interpreting such visualizations. I furthermore describe Internet-based visualization and information visualization. I focus on workflows associated with the Brede Toolbox for display of data mining results. A few neuroinformatics databases now exist that record results from neuroimaging studies in the form of brain coordinates in stereotaxic space. The Brede Toolbox was originally developed to extract, analyze and visualize data from one of them --- the BrainMap database. Since then the Brede Toolbox has expanded and now includes its own database with coordinates along with ontologies for brain regions and functions: The Brede Database. With Brede Toolbox and Database combined we setup automated workflows for extraction of data, mass meta-analytic data mining and visualizations. Most of the Web presence of the Brede Database is established by a single script executing a workflow involving these steps together with a final generation of Web pages with embedded visualizations and links to interactive three-dimensional models in the Virtual Reality Modeling Language.
