The rise of Big Data has influenced the design and technical implementation of visual analytic tools required to handle the increased volumes, velocities, and varieties of data. This has required a set of data management and computational advancements to allow us to store and compute on such datasets. However, as the ultimate goal of visual analytic technology is to enable the discovery and creation of insights from the users, an under-explored area is understanding how these datasets impact their mental models. That is, how have the analytic processes and strategies of users changed? How have users changed their perception of how to leverage, and ask questions of, these data sets?
