Although biological taxonomies are a prevalent use case in hierarchy visualization, there has been little research on the characterization of users’ tasks for taxonomy comparison. Task identification is very relevant as a start point to design an effective information visualization solution for taxonomic work. We performed a systematic domain characterization that involved interviews with experts, literature review, the identification of data sources, and a survey of existing software tools. We performed iterative analysis until we reached a satisfactory list of users’ tasks. We present the tasks in a two-level model, describe them, and discuss future work.
