title Display models: ways to classify visual representations
source CIDAC, Volume 2 Issue 4 November 2000, pp. 242-250
summary Visualisations are generated of diverse data and use many different techniques and visual methods. It is often beneficial to evaluate what is being visualised and how the visualisation is made up. Such an analysis may aid the developer to understand what 'tools' are available and help the user to reference and compare different realisations. Display models specifically classify the data by what type of output can be created. We review many 'display oriented models' and discuss important aspects of these methods and ideas. In presenting these models, we encourage their use. In particular, we focus on the symbolic reference model of Jacques Bertin. He used this model to describe images and 2D visualisations. We translate Bertin's scheme into algebraic form such as a method to decribe visualisations.
