We demonstrate a new approach to collaborative visual analysis, in which descriptions of graphics are shared online. HiVE – a high-level descriptive language – captures the way in which graphics are built and configured. HiVE statements and commentary can be micro-blogged. Compliant software clients can interpret HiVE, provide user-interfaces to allow users to explore data through graphical reconfiguration and can generate HiVE expressions that can be used in a collaborative context. We demonstrate this approach using examples from our work with the insurance industry. Index Terms: E.3 [Data]: Coding and Information Theory
