Page 248 - Visualization embraces both image understanding and image synthesis. That is, visualization is a tool both for interpreting image data fed into a computer, and for generating images from complex multidimensional data sets. It studies those mechanisms in humans and computers which allow them in concert to perceive, use and communicate visual information.
