Representation, presentation and interaction are subjects that require to be consciously contemplated while designing information visualization systems. This paper describes the ideation and design process of The Monarch Room, an information visualization system of global migration data. Our solution was designed to allow visitors of a museum to select, browse and interact with a visual interactive representation of migration flows in a unified view. Visitors can convey their learning purposes by seamlessly combining criteria such as time scales, location, and reasons behind migration, from either manual our automatic interactions. We believe our work contributes to the design of interfaces that enable a more in-depth understanding of global human migration patterns. In this paper, we describe our first design and research efforts.
