title Visualizing Representational Structures for Improving Data Conceptualization
source Connecting the Real and the Virtual - design e-ducation [20th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-0-8] Warsaw (Poland) 18-20 September 2002, pp. 328-332
summary Design problems require a multiplicity of viewpoints each distinguished by particular interests and emphases. Alternative viewpoints necessitate different representations of the same entity, albeit a building or building part, a shape or other complex attribute. Even within the same task and by the same person, various representations may serve alternative purposes defined by the problem context and the selected approach. Understanding a representational structure serves to comprehend its use within the context of one’s own intent. This requires the visualization of the representation and data, and the ability to manipulate and alter the data structure in order to explore its composition and scope and compare it to what may be desired or required. We report on an active research effort to provide a 3D graphical interface for the manipulation of representational and data structures in terms of composition and scope. The interface and system make use of a particular framework for representational flexibility. This additionally supports the integration of data functions into data structures for the purpose of querying derived data.
