Paper Abstract

This paper examines the relationship between the display representation of a database and the type of task performed with the data in a multidimensional data visualization task. Subjects answered a range of questions about an economic database while viewing either a 2-D or 3-D display of a subset of the database. Subjects'' performance on the questions is interpreted within the context of the Proximity Compatibility Principle, a theory-based principle of the perceptual/cognitive interface. Implications for the design of data visualization display interfaces are discussed.
