Streeb, Dirk: W. S. Cleveland and R. McGill [1985]: Graphical Perception and Graphical Methods for Analyzing Scientific Data doi:10.1126/science.229.4716.828 - 18.03.18 11:39 (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 828 When a graph is constructed, quantitative and categorical information is encoded, chiefly through position, shape, size, symbols, and color. When a person looks at a graph, the information is visually decoded by the person's visual system. A graphical method is successful only if the decoding is effective.
