Discipline Specific Definitions

George Legrady

discipline specific visualizations
Discipline Specific Visualizations

Each discipline has a particular implementation goal

  • Information Visualization: Analyzing and transforming nonspatial data into visual form for cognition
  • Scientific Visualization: Map physical phenomena in 2D, or 3D
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS): Cartographic framework, a familiar way to map data
  • LIS: citation indexing, bibliographic indexing, etc.
  • Art: Aesthetics, complexity, culturally meaningful results
  • Architecture: to convey information & affect

George Legrady

information visualization
Information Visualization
  • Visually map abstract, non-spatial data to analyze and understand data.
  • Focus on abstract data sets that do not have inherent 2D or 3D geometrical properties on their own
  • A general term that can cover a broad range of developments: data visualization, information graphics, knowledge visualization, etc.
  • A creative approach to convey abstract information in intuitive ways.
  • Involves processing of large datasets as a means to reveal meaningful patterns.

George Legrady

scientific visualization
Scientific Visualization
  • Interdisciplinary branch of science, concerned with visualizing 3D or time based phenomena
  • Emphasis on realistic rendering of volume, surfaces, illumination sources
  • Mapping phenomena such as medical biological meteorological systems
  • Graphical representation of numerical data for qualitative and quantitative analysis
  • Computer simulation of abstract models of a system, mathematical modeling of natural systems from physics, chemistry, biology,

gis geographical information systems
GIS (Geographical Information Systems)
  • Any information system that integrates stores, analyzes, displays geographical information
  • Analyze spatial information, maps
  • Cartography: Combines science, aesthetics, and technical processes to communicate information.
  • Cartographic modeling: Uses topology, and attribute information

lis library information science
LIS (Library Information Science)
  • LS applies practices, perspectives, tools of information technology and management to libraries
  • Focus on how people interact with classification systems and technology
  • How information is acquired, evaluated, and classified
  • Citation indexing, bibliographic indexing

Information Design, Information Graphics
  • Information design, a subset of graphic design
  • The intent is to display information effectively
  • Sometimes the visual effect dominates
