Z: Why vis?

Node: Visualizations show additional relationships

Descriptor AdditionalRelationships
Argumentative standpoint Design
Description

Visualizations can reveal relationships that are not part of its definition. For example, a bar chart with two bars does not only show values of two objects, but also represents the difference between the values. While the values are explicit in the data, the difference is only accessible through calculation. In the visualization, the two values as well as their difference are encoded as distances, i.e., the lengths of the bars and the distance from the top of one bar to the top of the other (measured parallel to the bar length).
