Abstract : On a grand scale, visual analytics solutions provide technology that combines the strengths of human and electronic data processing. Visualization becomes the medium of a semi-automated analytical process, where humans and machines cooperate using their respective distinct capabilities for the most effective results. The diversity of these tasks can not be tackled with a single theory. Visual analytics research is highly interdisciplinary and combines various related research areas such as visualization, data mining, data management, data fusion, statistics and cognition science (among others).
