A classification of sensemaking representations

Faisal, Sarah, Attfield, Simon ORCID logoORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0001-9374-2481 and Blandford, Ann (2009) A classification of sensemaking representations. In: CHI 2009 Workshop on Sensemaking, 04-05 Apr 2009, Boston, MA, USA. . [Conference or Workshop Item]


Interest in sensemaking has recently gained prominence in
human-computer interaction research. Efforts are being made to better understand sensemaking to help inform the design of appropriate computer-based tools. In this position paper we address the problem of design by presenting a propositional classification of sensemaking situations from a representational perspective. When people engage in sensemaking they organize information into structures which they use as a basis for guiding interpretation and the search for further data. It is these structures that we look at and classify in terms of representations. This position paper argues that such a classification can be used as a starting
point to inform the design of sensemaking support tools.
