Learning Visualizations by Analogy: Promoting Visual Literacy through Visualization Morphing

Puripant Ruchikachorn, Klaus Mueller
2015 IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics  
Our examples provide good insight how effective visualization pairings can be identified, and we hope that they will inspire other visualizations transformation pairs and associated transition strategies  ...  We demonstrate our idea by ways of four visualization pair examplesdata table vs. parallel coordinates, scatterplot matrix vs. hyperbox, linear chart vs. spiral chart, and pie chart vs. tree map.  ...  data encoded by pie chart and treemap provide no opportunities for dimension-wise interaction.  ...
