Visualization accumulates information (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 60 «A formal model was used to capture interaction with the tool, and these sessions were analyzed to improve the interface.»
Visualizations are ambiguous (-) Negative One or more sentences p. 57 «Relationships between records are problematic due to the ambiguous continuity of records that intersect on one or more axes»
Visualizations are animated (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 57 «Finally, the use of animation to communicate information in an incremental fashion can be quite effective; it is lossy communication, as viewers quickly forget some of what they have seen, but the ability to replay the animation can replace some of this lost information.»
Visualizations are (partially) redundant (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 57 «The amount of information contained may also be enhanced using redundant mappings, which improves the chances of successful reception by the viewer.»
Visualizations are specific (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 49 «For an appropriate support of the detection of patterns, a tool designer should know in advance what types of patterns need to be perceived (or otherwise detected) with the use of the tool. Then, after the tool is ready, it will be easy to explain to the users the purpose of the tool and instruct them how to detect the types of patterns the tool is oriented to.»
Visualizations distort usefully (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 55 «Distortion techniques such as lens effects and occlusion reduction also provide the analyst with trade-offs between accuracy and visual clarity. Each results in a transformation (typically of an object’s position on the screen) that is meant to improve the local interpretability at the cost of accuracy of global relations.»
Visualizations make data accessible (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 53 «Information visualization can be viewed as a communication channel from a dataset to the cognitive processing center of the human observer.»
Visualizations provide context (+) Positive Less than a sentence p. 56 «…though tick marks, labels, and axes are often essential for appropriate identification.»
Visualizations show visual patterns (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 48 «Such an abstraction is based on a holistic grasp of characteristic features embracing multiple data items. We shall use the term “pattern” to refer to such features.»
