Abstract

When exploring data or communicating it to other people, data is currently visualized through flat diagrams, tables, graphs, etc. Visualization of data in three dimensions (3D) offers more immersive and intuitive representations of the data and, through the added dimension, allows for more compact representations. Still, when representing large amounts of data in 3D, a fine control of the layout becomes a must. Current tools for 3D visualization do not allow for easy and fine tuned control of this layout. SuperSQL is an extension of the SQL language allowing users to declaratively and concisely specify the layout of, and generate structured documents such as web pages. In this work we extend SuperSQL to allow the generation of 3D data representations in the Unity game engine. With this system, users can represent their data through basic shapes, colors, and animations, or even their own custom 3D assets, by writing simple SQL-like queries.
