To gain a deeper understanding of collaborative visual data analysis around large interactive surfaces, we designed and carried out an observational user study. Co-located teams worked on collaborative visual analytics tasks using large interactive wall and tabletop displays. Our findings reinforced the importance of record keeping as an integral activity during collaborative data analysis. In addition, we characterized notes according to their content, scope, and usage, and described how they would fit into the process of collaborative data analysis. We also suggested design guidelines for note-taking functionality for co-located collaborative visual analytics tools.
