GIANT for DiViCo
The Group Interaction Analysis Toolkit (GIAnT) is a research tool that visualizes interactions of groups of people in front of a large interactive display wall. Please note: This is a fork (original GIAnT) that has been modified and extended to better fit the analysis requirements of the research project https://imld.de/mcv-displaywall (prototype application). This version of GIAnT has been used in our publication:
Ricardo Langner, Ulrike Kister and Raimund Dachselt, "Multiple Coordinated Views at Large Displays for Multiple Users: Empirical Findings on User Behavior, Movements, and Distances" in IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, vol. 25, no. 1, 2018. doi: 10.1109/TVCG.2018.2865235

This research prototyp only works on Linux or Mac. We developed this prototyp with Python 2.7. After installing Python you need to install some other dependencies:
Further you need to install GIAnT itself. GIAnT uses a small libavg plugin to display the visualizations which is built using CMake:
$ cd GIAnT/plugin $ mkdir build && cd build $ cmake .. $ make -j5 $ sudo make install
This project is developed by Marc Satkowski, Ulrike Kister and Ricardo Langner at the Interactive Media Lab Dresden, Technische Universität Dresden, Germany. Further development information can be found via the develpoment guide.
The basis for this prototyp was provided by Ulrich von Zadow.
