Part 2 Help: Quality Considerations for Linking Data

Scalability for # items

  • How many items can be linked for one relation?

Scalability for # relations

  • How many relationships can be shown at the same time?

Perception issues

  • Can the links be perceived easily or “preattentively”?
  • Can all entities belonging to a relationship be easily identified?

Occlusion issues

  • Is the base representation preserved?

Compatibility to base representation?

  • Is the choice of visual encoding for a link suitable for the encoding of the base representation?

Practical/Implementation issues?

  • Easy to implement?
  • Efficient to implement?
