Tufte provides a third quantity to his essential collection on knowledge display. the primary, The visual monitor of Quantitative knowledge, which focuses on charts and graphs that display numerical knowledge, just about defined the field. The 2d, Envisioning knowledge, explores equivalent territory but with an emphasis on maps and cartography. visual functions centers on dynamic knowledge--knowledge that changes over the years. (Tufte has outlined the 3 e e-e-books as being approximately, respectively, "photos of numbers, photos of nouns, and pictures of verbs.")
