Z: Why vis?

Node: Visualizations are open for mental interaction

Descriptor MentalInteraction
Argumentative standpoint Cognition
Description

Viewers can mentally manipulate visualizations. For example, parts of a visualization can be moved or rotated mentally, or viewers can imagine how they expected the data to look like in order to figure out differences.

Streeb, Dirk: J. S. Yi et al. [2007]: Toward a Deeper Understanding of the Role of Interaction in Information Visualization doi:10.1109/TVCG.2007.70515 - 20.03.18 09:43 (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 1 Spence even suggests the notion of “passive interaction” through which the user’s mental model on the data set is changed or enhanced (Spence2007).
Streeb, Dirk: S. D. Lathrop, S. Wintermute and J. E. Laird [2011]: Exploring the Functional Advantages of Spatial and Visual Cognition From an Architectural Perspective doi:10.1111/j.1756-8765.2010.01130.x - 10.03.18 10:42 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 802 Similar to Pegged Blocked World, the agent solves these problems by imagining the situation and the outcome of its actions before choosing an action to execute.
Streeb, Dirk: Z. Liu, N. J. Nersessian and J. T. Stasko [2008]: Distributed Cognition as a Theoretical Framework for Information Visualization doi:10.1109/TVCG.2008.121 - 02.03.18 08:41 (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 2 Hutchins puts it this way: “tools permit us to transform difficult tasks into ones that can be done by pattern matching, by the manipulation of simple physical systems, or by mental simulations of manipulations of simple physical systems. Tools are useful precisely because the cognitive processes required to manipulate them are not the computational processes accomplished by their manipulation.”
Streeb, Dirk: M. Giaquinto [2007]: Visual Thinking in Mathematics isbn:978-0-19-928594-5 - 01.02.18 07:54 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 18 Recognition by matching in either of these ways, changing the reference system or visualizing a rotation, can lead to discovery.
