Symbols carry „natural“ meaning (*) Mentioned without valuation One or more sentences p. 8 «…"more" of something in a display should correspond to "more" of a substance—higher bars or lines, larger wedges or regions, or the greater extent of a surface should indicate more of the measured material.» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 1, 2018
Visualizations aid in communication / presentation (+) Positive One or more sentences p. 17 «In particular, keep in mind at all times that a graph is intended to make a specific point, and its visual appearance should convey that point.» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 1, 2018

Visualizations reduce effort (+) Positive One or more paragraphs pp. 10-11 «In both these cases, the selection of a graph type unsuitable for the data means more work for the reader…» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 1, 2018

(Visualizations reduce effort --builds on-> Visualizations show visual patterns) (*) Mentinoed One or more paragraphs p. 12 «The grouping into columns is misleading and so to read the graph one has to override the initial visual impression, expending time and effort.» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 1, 2018
(Visual perception has high bandwidth --builds on-> Visualizations show visual patterns) (*) Mentinoed One or more paragraphs p. 10 «Although we can consider only about four groups at a time, we can absorb much more information if the information is translated into visual patterns.» Streeb, Dirk: Feb. 1, 2018
