We are collecting samples of presentations that integrate Natural
Language and Graphics in order to describe and analyze the components
and the structure of such presentations. We focus on argumentative presentations
presentations that are making claims/points about the data). We want to
determine how text and graphic contribute to the construction of arguments.
This Corpus is only a first step in addressing these issues.
Categorize points/claims made by means of presentations, trying to abstract
away from the specific domain.
Determine what kind of graphical or linguistic techniques and their combination
support specific points. Among others:
Role of redundancy between text and graphics (e.g. the text repeats/stresses
facts already expressed by the graphics) and in the graphics itself (e.g.
cyclical time-series, redundant mapping from data properties to graphical
How facts can be presented with different degrees of accuracy.
When/Why some particular aggregations/disaggregations are shown?
When/Why some particular subsets of the data are selected or highlighted?
Different definitions for the same change.
