Visualization Taxonomy

Visualization can be broadly classified into:

  • Information Visualization –  Use of interactive visual representations of abstract, non-physical based data to amplify cognition.
  • Scientific Visualization – This is the use of interactive visual representation of scientific data to amplify cognition. Spatial components are typically associated with this type of data.
  • Visual Analytics – The discipline of interacting with visual data to extract statistics from it to support or disprove a hypothesis. This can be performed over scientific data or abstract data.
