HARVEST is an intelligent visualization system designed to empower everyday business users to derive insight from large amounts of data. It combines three key technologies to support a complex, exploratory visualization-based analysis process without requiring users to be visualization or computer experts. First, HARVEST employs a set of smart visual analytic widgets that can be easily reused across applications and support incremental visual updates as required by a continuous visual analytic process. Second, it has a visualization recommendation engine that dynamically suggests suitable visualization widgets to users in context. Third, it supports the semantics-based capture of user visual analytic activity for the reuse and sharing of insight provenance.
