Visualization reference model
The visualization pipeline is a general model for a typical structure of a visualization process, which has been abstracted from earlier works in visualization in the late 1980s , and then adapted and extended several times [1, 2,…]. Starting out from data to be visualized and a particular visualization task at hand, a number of steps are processed along the visualization pipeline, including data enhancement, visualization mapping, and rendering, to eventually achieve a visualization of the data with the purpose of serving the given visualization task through effectiveness, expressiveness, and appropriateness .
Data visualization is a part of computer science which provides expressive visual representations of data – through the appropriate application of computer graphics, often also in an interactive form – with the intention to effectively aid specific user tasks, including the exploration, analysis, and presentation...
