Z: Why vis?

Node: Visualization follows logic and mathematic laws

Descriptor LogicMathematic
Argumentative standpoint Basic
Description

Abstract visualizations can be constructed based on locically and mathematically sound procedures. As a result, the structural elements of the abstract visualization—e.g., visual scales—represent structures of the data space—e.g., measurement dimensions—faithfully. For example, mapping a dimension that is measured on an interval scale to position along a common axis preserves the central features of the interval scale level.
