Research in information visualization has produced a wide variety of applications. The look and function of an application is determined by the type of user tasks the visualization is designed to support, the kind of data being visualized, and the way the application uses basic features such as color, size, shape, proximity, and motion to represent data. While there are several ways to survey this range of information visualization applications, perhaps the most fundamental method is to categorize them by the underlying data types that the applications attempt to visualize. This organization by data type, as outlined by Ben Shneiderman (Shneiderman, 1998), identifies seven data types:
This paper will survey the information visualization field by describing applications relevant to each data type. Many applications, however, are based on data that can be placed into more than one data type category, making this organization somewhat artificial.
