Abstract

Contact diaries are interpersonal communication logs which are obtained in sociological and epidemiological studies. These logs can be used to study the social patterns of communities over a period of time. A dataset composed of diaries maps well to a set of one-tiered, categorical, independent and egocentric networks. This paper presents an interface for visualization and analysis of contact diaries datasets using an interactive radial mapping scheme, with case studies illustrating a standard workflow using the application. We facilitate individual diary analysis, multi-dataset comparison, and an overlay interface for investigating a set of many diaries in a singular space. With this interface, network researchers can utilize visualization to enhance their analysis of contact diaries.
