SensibleJournal: A Mobile Personal Informatics System for Visualizing Mobility and Social Interactions

Andrea Cuttone

AbstractIn this thesis I describe SensibleJournal, a mobile personal informatics system for visualizing mobility and social interactions. SensibleJournal proposes novel visualization techniques for quantified-self data, including a Spiral Timeline view to analyze periodic movement patterns, and a Social Network view to explore the temporal evolution of social connections. The app has been deployed to N=136 university students during a period of six months. An evaluation based on user survey and on app usage data shows that SensibleJournal motivates users to explore self-tracking data, and helps them understanding several aspects of their behaviour.
