Our research addresses the question of how to design interfaces for spatial analysis such that they support cognitive processes. In this paper we specifically target the question of map symbol design for the analysis of multivariate data, which is a common problem in cartography and related fields. We focus on star plots and the largely unaddressed question of how to assign variables to rays in a star plot and which consequences specific shapes—as the result of data characteristics and the… CONTINUE READING
