Visualization accumulates information (*) Mentioned without valuation Implicitly sec. 1 «While it is absolutely essential to optimize each visualization workflow in a heuristic and case-by-case manner.» Streeb, Dirk: March 4, 2018
Visualization enables alphabet compression (+) Positive Basically all of the publication abstract «We noticed a common phenomenon at different levels of visualization, that is, the transformation of data spaces (referred to as alphabets) usually corresponds to the reduction of maximal entropy along a workflow.» Streeb, Dirk: March 4, 2018
Visualizations abstract structures (*) Mentioned without valuation One or more sentences sec. 4.2 «When we use line plots to visualize these r time series, we may only be able to differentiate 128 data values per data point. In this case, the maximal entropy is reduced to r × 60 × log 2 (128) = 420r bits.» Streeb, Dirk: March 4, 2018
Visualizations are augmented with knowledge (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 1 «The input to the transformation may also include “soft” information and knowledge, such as known theories, intuition, belief, value judgment, and so on.» Streeb, Dirk: March 4, 2018
Visualizations are combined with language (*) Mentioned without valuation One or more sentences sec. 3.1 «…the dissemination process is almost always accompanied by written or verbal commentaries describing the understanding and/or opinions of analysts.» Streeb, Dirk: March 4, 2018
Visualizations are open for interaction (+) Positive One or more subsections sec. 5.1 «In data analysis and visualization, human-computer interaction plays a significant role in breaking the condition of the data processing inequality. It enables human analysts to introduce “soft” information and knowledge into such a process.» Streeb, Dirk: March 4, 2018
Visualizations make information understandable (+) Positive Implicitly sec. 5.3 Streeb, Dirk: March 4, 2018
Visualizations reduce effort (+) Positive One or more subsections sec. 5.2 «The binary digits view thereby incurs a huge cost at the feature recognition step, while bringing lower benefit. This mathematically explains the merits of time series plot over a spatially-compact binary digits view.» Streeb, Dirk: March 4, 2018
Visualizations re-represent structures (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 1 «…visualization enables transformation of information from one representation to another.» Streeb, Dirk: March 4, 2018
Visualizations support external memorization (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 3.1 «The goal of visualization is to enable intuitive and speedily observation of features, phenomena and events captured in the data, and to provide external memorization of what have been observed.» Streeb, Dirk: March 4, 2018
