Perception infers abstract structures (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 16 «In addition, the visual representation automatically supported a large number of perceptual inferences that were extremely easy for humans.»
Perception infers abstract structures (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 1 «…using the special properties of visual perception to resolve logical problems…»
Visualizations abstract structures (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 16, tab 1.3 «Visualizations simplify and organize information, supplying higher centers with aggregated forms of information through abstraction and selective omission.»
Visualizations aid in communication / presentation (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 1 «One purpose is for communicating an idea, for which it is sometimes said, "A picture is worth a thousand words."»
Visualizations are compact (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 16 «They can compact information into a small space.»
Visualizations are open for interaction (+) Positive Less than a sentence p. 7 «… visual aids to cognition benefit from good visual representations of a problem and from interactive manipulation of those representations.»
Visualizations are specific (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 4 «Each type of map sacrifices accurate representation of some physical property of the earth, because its true purpose is to support specific calculations.»
Visualizations distort usefully (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 4 «Each type of map sacrifices accurate representation of some physical property of the earth, because its true purpose is to support specific calculations.»
Visualizations drive attention (+) Positive Less than a sentence p. 16 «…by using perceptual attention mechanisms for monitoring…»
Visualizations enable parallel perceptual processing (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 16, tab. 1.3 «Some attributes of visualizations can be processed in parallel compared to text, which is serial.»
Visualizations encourage counterfactual approaches (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 3 «We could easily do "what if" calculations…»
Visualizations group information – dimensions of objects (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 16 «By using location to group information about a single element, the need to match symbolic labels was avoided, leading to reductions in search and working memory.»
Visualizations localize information (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 16 «By grouping together information that is used together, large amounts of search were avoided.»
Visualizations localize information (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 4 «…storing for access enormous amounts of information about the earth's irregular features naturally located near where they are needed for calculation.»
Visualizations provide a spatial index structure (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 2 «By writing intermediate results in neatly aligned columns … the doer of multiplication creates a visual addressing structure that minimizes visual search and speeds access.»
Visualizations re-represent structures (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 5 «The diagram illustrates how the right representation of a problem, often the right visual representation, can make a problematic decision obvious.»
Visualizations show visual patterns (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 1 «…automatically assemble thousands of data objects into pictures, revealing hidden patterns.»
Visualizations support external memorization (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 2 «The visual representation, by holding partial results outside the mid, extends a persons working memory.»
Visual perception has high bandwidth (+) Positive Less than a sentence p. 7 «But vision, the sense with by far the largest bandwidth…»
