Z: Why vis?

Node: Perception enhances visual structures

Descriptor EnhancedStructures
Argumentative standpoint Interplay
Description

A visualization does not only show the entities that define it, but also is enriched by perception with parts that emerge from the visual representation. For example, a set of close points in a scatter plot is perceived as group, despite the points not being linked explicitly in the visualization.

Kosslyn [1989]: Understanding Charts and Graphs doi:10.1002/acp.2350030302 - 09.07.20 06:59 (*) Mentioned without valuation One or more sentences p. 191 Fourth, stimuli are organized into coherent groups and units by the time we become aware of them. Much of this organization is ‘automatic’, not under voluntary control, and is determined by reasonably well-understood properties of stimuli (e. g. proximity of elements). The grouping imposed by these automatic processes must be respected if a chart or graph is to be seen the way a designer intends.

This evidence argues for the importance of visual display design.
