Streeb, Dirk: J. T. Stasko [2014]: Value-Driven Evaluation of Visualizations doi:10.1145/2669557.2669579 - 19.03.18 10:16 (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 2 He specifically describes the importance of matching representations to the task at hand in order for visuals to provide the best cognitive value.
Streeb, Dirk: H. C. Purchase et al. [2008]: Theoretical Foundations of Information Visualization doi:10.1007/978-3-540-70956-5_3 - 12.03.18 10:35 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 49 For an appropriate support of the detection of patterns, a tool designer should know in advance what types of patterns need to be perceived (or otherwise detected) with the use of the tool. Then, after the tool is ready, it will be easy to explain to the users the purpose of the tool and instruct them how to detect the types of patterns the tool is oriented to.
