Streeb, Dirk: P. Parsons and K. Sedig [2014]: Adjustable Properties of Visual Representations: Improving the Quality of Human-Information Interaction doi:10.1002/asi.23002 - 08.03.18 14:09 (+-) Ambivalent One or more paragraphs p. 457 In any given VR [visual representation], the value of the density property exists along a continuum from low to high (e.g., a VR may have a very high degree of density with thousands of encoded entities or a low degree with only a few entities). This value influences an actor’s cognitive processing and visual reasoning with the encoded information (e.g., too many entities can result in perceptual overload and errors in reasoning).
Streeb, Dirk: H. Wainer [1984]: How to Display Data Badly doi:10.1080/00031305.1984.10483186 - 02.03.18 12:48 (+) Positive One or more paragraphs pp. 137ff One of the great assets of graphical techniques is that they can convey large amounts of information in a small space.
Streeb, Dirk: A. Gelman and A. Unwin [2013]: Infovis and Statistical Graphics: Different Goals, Different Looks doi:10.1080/10618600.2012.761137 - 27.02.18 16:15 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 7 The picture tells the story as well as, and in less space than, the equivalent thousand words.
Streeb, Dirk: K. Cook et al. [2015]: Mixed-Initiative Visual Analytics Using Task-Driven Recommendations doi:10.1109/VAST.2015.7347625 - 25.02.18 12:14 (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 6 Compact visual representations provide overviews of patterns in recommended data to help support selection of plausible or interesting next steps in the sensemaking process.
Streeb, Dirk: S. K. Card, J. D. Mackinlay and B. Shneiderman [1999]: Readings in Information Visualization – Using Vision to Think isbn:978-1-55860-533-6 - 06.02.18 12:59 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 16 They can compact information into a small space.
Streeb, Dirk: E. R. Tufte [2001[1983]]: The Visual Display of Quantitative Information isbn:978-0-9613921-4-7 - 05.02.18 12:03 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 16 Only a picture can carry such a volume of data in such a small space.
Streeb, Dirk: R. Spence [2007[2001]]: Information visualization: Design for interaction isbn:978-0-12-206550-4 - 05.02.18 10:30 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 9 In some cases every available pixel is harnessed to provide a display that can lead to understanding.
Streeb, Dirk: K. Hornbæk and M. Hertzum [2011]: The notion of overview in information visualization doi:10.1016/j.ijhcs.2011.02.007 - 25.01.18 16:17 (+) Positive
