Streeb, Dirk: A. Gelman and A. Unwin [2013]: Infovis and Statistical Graphics: Different Goals, Different Looks doi:10.1080/10618600.2012.761137 - 27.02.18 16:15 (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 9 We would probably remember a young man in green and white striped jeans better than one in a smart business suit. Does this mean we should dress exotically, if we want to be noticed? It obviously depends on what we want to be noticed for. The same goes for visualizations and we should think of graphics as being part of a whole, not viewing them in isolation.
Streeb, Dirk: A. V. Moere and H. C. Purchase [2011]: On the role of design in information visualization doi:10.1177/1473871611415996 - 21.02.18 16:33 (+) Positive Less than a sentence p. 363 Recent empirical results show how apparently non-utilitarian ‘visual embellishments’ in the form of meaningful metaphors do not affect interpretation accuracy, but positively influence long-term recall in simple infographic charts. 41 Whether the same is true for more complex or interactive information visualization techniques is yet unknown.
Streeb, Dirk: R. Spence [2007[2001]]: Information visualization: Design for interaction isbn:978-0-12-206550-4 - 05.02.18 10:30 (+) Positive Less than a sentence p. 2 …and the map's essential features remain in our memory long after we have ceased looking at it.
