Z: Why vis?

Node: Visualizations relate model and data directly

Descriptor ModelDataRelation
Argumentative standpoint Semiotics

Both, models and data, are abstract mathematical structures. By their very nature they differ and have distinct properties. For example, data can be mesured on different scales and models can have several parameters to be set. There also are features that emerge from a suitable combination of data and model, e.g., model fit and residuals of a regression model. Visualization maps these diverse abstract objects to visual structures that have similar properties. The in type more similar visual structures can be related more easily.
