Streeb, Dirk: D. A. Keim et al. [2010]: Mastering the Information Age Solving Problems with Visual Analytics isbn:978-3-905673-77-7 - 10.03.18 14:06 (+-) Ambivalent One or more sentences p. 125 A closely related challenge is the choice of an optimal level of visual abstraction (e.g., from the low level 1-to-1 correspondence of a scatterplot to high levels that involve clustering); however, as with visual metaphors, the choice is very dependent on the user and their experience, knowledge and goals.
Streeb, Dirk: J. J. Thomas [2005]: Illuminating the Path: The Research and Development Agenda for Visual Analytics isbn:0-7695-2323-4 - 08.03.18 09:07 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 86 The objective is “to create an abstraction that conveys key ideas while suppressing irrelevant detail.”
Streeb, Dirk: M. Chen and A. Golan [2016]: What May Visualization Processes Optimize? doi:10.1109/TVCG.2015.2513410 - 04.03.18 10:31 (*) Mentioned without valuation One or more sentences sec. 4.2 When we use line plots to visualize these r time series, we may only be able to differentiate 128 data values per data point. In this case, the maximal entropy is reduced to r × 60 × log 2 (128) = 420r bits.

Hegarty [2011]: The Cognitive Science of Visual-Spatial Displays: Implications for Design doi:10.1111/j.1756-8765.2011.01150.x - 02.03.18 13:46 (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 455 Intuitions about animations are an example of a more general intuition that iconic displays should resemble their referents as much as possible, when in fact the power of visual spatial displays often comes from their ability to simplify and abstract from reality.
Streeb, Dirk: R. Goebel [2014]: A Sketch of a Theory of Visualization doi:10.5220/0004852702180221 - 21.02.18 15:36 (+) Positive One or more sections sec. 3 In contrast to traditional logical chains of inference those within a multi-layer theory of visualization can transcend abstraction boundaries…

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, tab 1.3 Visualizations simplify and organize information, supplying higher centers with aggregated forms of information through abstraction and selective omission.
Streeb, Dirk: E. R. Tufte [1997]: Visual Explanations: Images and Quantities, Evidence and Narrative isbn:978-0-9613921-2-3 - 06.02.18 09:03 (+-) Ambivalent One or more paragraphs pp. 35-37 Aggregations over time may also mask relevant detail and generate misleading signals…
