Z: Why vis?

Node: Visualizations enable application of visuospatial skills to abstract domains

Descriptor VisuospatialSkills
Argumentative standpoint Cognition
Description

Visualizations can enable viewers to use their visuospatial memory and reasoning skills when dealing with abstract problems that otherwise are only open for scrutiny using more abstract (e.g., formal) approaches.

Streeb, Dirk: D. Kirsh [2010]: Thinking with External Representations doi:10.1007/s00146-010-0272-8 - 12.03.18 12:35 (+) Positive One or more paragraphs pp. 446–447 Interaction has thus converted the world from a place where internal computation was required to solve the problem to one where the relevant property can be perceived or physically discovered. Action and vision have been substituted for imagery, projection, and memory.

[2008]: The Value of Information Visualization doi:10.1007/978-3-540-70956-5_1 - 26.02.18 12:44 (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 6 …graphical visualization can support more efficient task performance by allowing substitution of rapid perceptual inferences for difficult logical inferences…
