Active engagement enables direct learning (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 115 «Users adopt situated solution strategies using previous practical experience rather than abstract mental plans.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Space carries meaning (+) Positive Implicitly p. 118 «…space is a powerful analogy.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations abstract structures (+-) Ambivalent One or more sentences p. 125 «A closely related challenge is the choice of an optimal level of visual abstraction (e.g., from the low level 1-to-1 correspondence of a scatterplot to high levels that involve clustering); however, as with visual metaphors, the choice is very dependent on the user and their experience, knowledge and goals.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations are aesthetic (*) Mentioned without valuation One or more sentences p. 124 «At a more detailed level, this relates to design decisions such as ratios between blank space and ‘used’ space, text lists vs. graphic display, and display aesthetics.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations are objects to reference (can be pointed to) (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 2 «A visual representation will sketch this path and provide a reference for their collaboration across different tasks and at different levels of detail.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations are open for interaction (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 11 «Visualisations allow the analysts to interact with the automatic methods by modifying parameters or selecting other analysis algorithms.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations are specific (+) Positive Implicitly p. 125 «However, given that visualisations are applied/developed to support specific contexts, how can design knowledge be re-used in alternative domains?» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations drive attention (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 112 «These principles can be used for guiding attention efficiently in visual displays…» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations enable progressive evaluation (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 2 «Visual analytics will foster the constructive evaluation, correction and rapid improvement of our processes and models and ultimately the improvement of our knowledge and our decisions.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations externalize constraints (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 115 «The donuts-on-pegs representation is inherently easier because constraints of the problem are part of the analogy, as only the topmost and largest donut can be removed (only one can be moved at a time).» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations integrate views/data (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 11 «Alternating between visual and automatic methods is characteristic for the visual analytics process and leads to a continuous refinement and verification of preliminary results.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations make information understandable (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 2 «…the goal of visual analytics is to make our way of processing data and information transparent for an analytic discourse. The visualisation of these processes will provide the means of examining the actual processes instead of just the results.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations serve to focuse/reorganize/explore thoughts (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 125 «…the externalisation of mental constructs makes them available for perceptual and more explicit critique.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations show visual patterns (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 114 «Ware describes this as visual queries - the search for patterns in the outside world. This capacity of human information processing is very flexible and adaptive.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations support external memorization (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 114 «It might be argued that observers use the environment as some kind of external memory…» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visualizations track provenance (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 125 «Understanding this more clearly can help suggest appropriate interaction mechanisms, for example, making use of design rationale, annotations, history and provenance.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
Visual perception has high bandwidth (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 111 «The human visual system has by far the highest bandwidth (the amount of data in a given time interval) of any of our senses and there is considerable research into how we make use of this data about our immediate environment.» Streeb, Dirk: March 10, 2018
