However, there has been little attempt to develop a systematic and comprehensive hierarchy of visual languages based on their formal properties. Given the importance of the Chomsky hierarchy for the theory of textual languages and the difficulty of comparing these many different visual language formalisms, it is clear… CONTINUE READING
