Z: Why vis?

Node: Visual entities are homogeneous

Descriptor Homogeniety
Argumentative standpoint Semiotics

Visualizations map entities of different types to visual representations, which are of the same kind and thus easier to put in relation to each other. For example, a bar chart on the speed of light, sound in air, a plane, a horse, and the growth of bamboo shows distinct objects like electromagnetic waves, pressure waves, human artifacts, animals, and size change of a plant as visual representations of the same kind, i.e., rectangles.
