Visualization Encoding Experiments for Power Systems Analysis

Through a human factors study, we evaluated the use of contour and glyph visualizations for two modern power systems models: an urban distribution model and a large-scale transmission model. This dataset provides model data and scripts for recreating the power flow data and visualizations used in the study, in addition to the study results and statistical analysis.
