Example text

Of course, it never is quite final. Even if we were able to come up with the perfect visualization, our knowledge changes and with it changes the visual. In fact, the visual often provides so much insight that our knowledge changes and thus the visual needs to change creating a fascinating recursive loop. Strangely, while we have learned much about Knowledge Visualization over the last 100 years, we still have yet to rethink and redesign some of the most common forms of communication. For example, the lowly recipe, which has been around and largely unchanged for more than 3,600 years, is a form of communication from one person to another.

Insights from a review of seminal concepts. In: Proceedings of the 15th International Conference Information Visualisation. London. 13–15 July, pp. 349–354. IEEE Computer Society Press, Los Alamitos (2011b) 13. : Knowledge Visualization—Towards a New Discipline and its Fields of Application. ICA Working Paper 2/2004. Institute for Corporate Communication. Università della Svizzera italiana (2004) 14. : Knowledge visualization. G. (ed) Encyclopedia of Knowledge Management, pp. 551–560. Idea Group, Hershey (2006) 15.

Hence, it is “understanding understanding” (cf. [28, 36] that has to be at the core of the Knowledge Visualization theory frame—in producing, deciphering, and evaluating the process of visualizing knowledge and thinking. We might as well conclude that this is as much an art form as it is a science and the reflections throughout this chapter would support that. Another commonality between the parts is the more diligent differentiation between Information Visualization and Knowledge Visualization that is expressed throughout this chapter.
