Space carries meaning (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 828 «When a graph is constructed, quantitative and categorical information is encoded, chiefly through position, shape, size, symbols, and color. When a person looks at a graph, the information is visually decoded by the person's visual system. A graphical method is successful only if the decoding is effective.»

Visualizations are precise (i.e., verbose) (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 832 «For example, using just the mean and standard deviation does not reveal outliers. Box plots give us more information about data distributions and allow us to appreciate the behavior of outliers.»
Visualizations make data errors obvious (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 832 «For example, using just the mean and standard deviation does not reveal outliers. Box plots give us more information about data distributions and allow us to appreciate the behavior of outliers.»
Visualizations show visual patterns (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 828 «…much of the power of graphs—and what distinguishes them from tables—comes from the ability of our preattentive visual system to detect geometric patterns and assess magnitudes.»
