The spatial-perceptual design space: a new comprehension for data visualization
We revisit the design space of visualizations aiming at identifying and relating its components. In this sense, we establish a model to examine the process through which visualizations become expressive for users. This model has lead us to a taxonomy oriented to the human visual perception. The essence of this taxonomy provides natural criteria in order to delineate a novel understanding for the design space of visualizations. From such understanding, we elaborate a model for generalized design. Based on the review of former works and of classical and state-of-the-art techniques, our model draws a systematic formation scheme for visualization techniques. The model poses an intuitive comprehension for the visualization design process departing from fundamental pre-attentive stimuli and from perceptual phenomena. The paper is presented as a survey, its structure introduces an alternative conceptual organization for the space of techniques concerning visual analysis.
