By using the global representation,I transform the data in a kind
of alien landscape explored having a visual index as a map and
animation as a way to move quickly through it.
This is just a starting point, equivalent to building the first road in a
unexplored territory. From this first road now you can start the real
exploration by selecting
single interesting objects or classifying some
of them in
subsets of similar objects. You may order them and play animations
by using representations different from the "global" one.
Visual techniques more specific to this data base are:
But now you don't need to be an expert to explore the data base putting
in this way your visual system to work.
Our visual system has "discovered" the Newton laws many years before Newton:
will this new way to explore data allow us to discover new laws of nature
Let us see.
