Z: Why vis?

Node: Visualizations are constrained by the properties of spaces

Descriptor SpatialConstraints
Argumentative standpoint Basic
Description

Mappings from one space to another are constrained by the properties of both spaces. For example, the output space of a simple black-and-white scatter plot visualization has two numeric dimensions. Mappings from higher dimensional spaces, or spaces including nominal dimensions cannot preserve all features of the input space, e.g., high-dimensional structures, or the lack of order of the nominal dimension.
