English term or phrase:prepare
This doesn't mean that all these visualization systems will soon be in widespread use, however. Some visualization projects have been designed to explore a specific idea and are optimized to work with a very specific set of data. Making them work with more general data requires much more development work. Other systems, such as the SmartForest project, use extremely complex and detailed databases that are expensive and time-consuming to prepare (SmartForest, 1997). And although usability studies of some projects have shown that users are more effective when working with visualization interfaces, usability test subjects sometimes required a period of time to adjust to the visual paradigm; this might be a problem for systems aimed at the general public.
