Z: Why vis?

Node: Visualizations externalize constraints

Descriptor ConstraintExternalization
Argumentative standpoint Design
Description

Visualizations can map abstract constraints to constraints enforced by the physical nature of visual structures. Thus, these constraints do not need to be checked manually to ensure sound reasoning and faithful interaction.
