Hi, I am currently trying to design a visualization for "Quality Indicator" (QI). The QI shall represent the quality of the data that has been loaded in to the software. I have a couple of preliminary thoughts -

1. A circle which shows a traffic light signal (red/yellow/green). This however would be a problem for the colorblind folks.

2. Signal bars - a set of 5 bars with increasing height (typically used in mobile phones to show the strength of the signal). Whether the bar is filled with a color depends on the quality of the input data.

Wanted to know if there are any other ideas that can serve as inputs...

Can I throw an extra question in here:

When someone is looking at a rich data set, they are trying to get a question answered.

What is the question that the data is answering?

hi William, thanks for the question... the user is looking at an image and the image has some noise in it. The information the user derives from the image needs to be offset by quantifying the noise in the image. The Quality Indicator (placed on the image) tries to give this information at a glance and more detailed information can be shown on clicking on the Quality Indicator.

hi William, I was giving further thought to your question... the user sees the data and measures say the distance between 2 locations on the image. Now the distance between the 2 locations depends on the quality of the image. Thus the Quality Indicator gives an indication of the difference between the measured distance and the actual distance.
