English term or phrase:assimilate
Information visualization applications rely on basic features that the human perceptual system inherently assimilates very quickly: color, size, shape, proximity, and motion. These features can be used by the designers of information systems to increase the data density of the information displayed (Tufte, 1990). Because we perceive such features so readily, and because each feature can be used to represent different attributes of data, good visualizations enable us to not only perceive information more easily but also to perceive more information at one time. We can immediately see patterns in data that indicate trends, recognize gaps in the data, discover outliers or errors in the data, pinpoint minimum and maximum values, and identify clusters. As a result, information visualization applications enable us to better understand complex systems, make better decisions, and discover information that might otherwise remain unknown.
