Z: Why vis?

Node Tag: Focal pathway: [➋] 2. Transforming data to visual images

Arguments in this category focus on the transformations from data to visual images. This category also includes those arguments about visual mapping, a smaller section in the pathway, e.g., the pipeline by Card et al. (Card1999). Many arguments in the standpoint categories Semiotic and Design fall into Pathway ➋.
