Paper Abstract

This paper examines the issues on visualizing an individual careers, considering the problem as a particular example of an event history. The even history is displayed as a pencil- like multi-faceted object in 2D or 3D space, with changes of states being represented by changes in color texture or height. The extension of these ideas to viewing many criminal histories is then described. The Lexis diagram provides a suitable paradigm and is used to position the pencils in space. The resulting graphical representation is closely related to the ideas of Bertin.
