Abstract:Data visualization has a long history; dating back to the origin of writing; while the history of cartography spans several thousand years. During that time both fields developed effective approaches to display information clearly. Unfortunately; modern computer-based visualization practices often neglect this history. Many data visualizations can be improved by incorporating traditional techniques of visualization and modern design methods based on the knowledge of human perception.
