Visualization methods

If you like using visuals such as Venn Diagrams, mind maps, and charts of various kinds, you will love learning about 72 methods displayed in the Periodic Table of Visualization Methods. Just before posting this, I took a look at the family of Metaphor Visualization; the Heaven ‘n’ Hell map intrigued me.

I was delighted to find this elegant catalogue of visualizations methods a few years , and the interactive version provides interesting examples of each, using rollovers.  Lengler and Eppler hold the copyright, and a simple search leads you their original paper explaining the various categories.  See the table here.
