Visualizing the Elder Scrolls Lore

Dan Ivancic

HCI 530: Data Visualization

slide2

Rationale

Not understanding the game world detracts from the play experience.

  • Reading large amounts of in-game texts can:
  • Be Inconsistent (books are spread across the world – hard to know what a book is about)
  • Be Boring
  • Take up play time

Condensed histories are available online but are still only text.

A visual display can provide a streamlined learning experience - allowing the player to gain familiarity with the world and as a result have a more inviting and rewarding play experience.

Presenting the Data

History: Individual Events at points in Time and Space

Events

Time

Space

Need to design or find a format to cleverly encompass these aspects

Searched for examples of visualizations dealing with the this type of data

slide13

Presenting the Data

History: Individual Events at points in Time and Space

Events

Time

Space

slide14

Maps and images are combined

Graphics alternate between telling story and providing imagery

Structure is not well defined

slide15

Panes separate aspects effectively

Time is estimated (balance of interval/ordinal)

Color labels allow events to share a map but are not consistently used

Images add information and allow for quick glancing

slide16

Time is separated into blocks of 500 years - specific dates are omitted in favor of simplicity

Color coding is consistently used for every event that appears on a map
