Z: Why vis?

Node Tag: Focal pathway: [➍] 4. Extracting knowledge from data using visualization

This pathway is the combination of ➋ and ➌, focusing the relationship between data and knowledge via visualization. Arguments in this category typically mention something about data, visualization, and mind. The visual exploration path in the pipeline by Keim et al. (Keim2008) is such a pathway.
