Visualizations aid in communication / presentation (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 1 «One purpose is for communicating an idea, for which it is sometimes said, "A picture is worth a thousand words."» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 6, 2018
Visualizations are compact (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 16 «They can compact information into a small space.» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 6, 2018

Visualizations are open for interaction (+) Positive Streeb, Dirk: Jan. 26, 2018
Visualizations are specific (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 4 «Each type of map sacrifices accurate representation of some physical property of the earth, because its true purpose is to support specific calculations.» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 6, 2018
Visualizations distort usefully (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 4 «Each type of map sacrifices accurate representation of some physical property of the earth, because its true purpose is to support specific calculations.» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 6, 2018

Visualizations group information – dimensions of objects (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 16 «By using location to group information about a single element, the need to match symbolic labels was avoided, leading to reductions in search and working memory.» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 6, 2018

Visualizations provide a spatial index structure (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 2 «By writing intermediate results in neatly aligned columns … the doer of multiplication creates a visual addressing structure that minimizes visual search and speeds access.» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 6, 2018
Visualizations provide a spatial index structure (+) Positive Streeb, Dirk: Jan. 26, 2018
Visualizations re-represent structures (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 5 «The diagram illustrates how the right representation of a problem, often the right visual representation, can make a problematic decision obvious.» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 6, 2018
Visualizations show visual patterns (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 1 «…automatically assemble thousands of data objects into pictures, revealing hidden patterns.» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 6, 2018
Visualizations show visual patterns (+) Positive Streeb, Dirk: Jan. 26, 2018
Visualizations support external memorization (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 2 «The visual representation, by holding partial results outside the mid, extends a persons working memory.» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 6, 2018
