Abstract: The physical visualization of more complex datasets often mimic traditional and display-centric information visualization techniques, ranging from tangible pie charts to human-scale renditions parallel coordinates graphs. However, our physical world inherently carries and affords for the communication of much richer, multi-faceted and interpretative meanings than just quantitative values. This short paper therefore makes a call to incorporate the qualitative and tacit aspects of our physical environment in future physical visualization research efforts. We believe a physical visualization should not only facilitate data analytical tasks in comprehensible ways, but also exploit natural physical affordances by way of appropriate iconic and indexical data mapping, to make the sense-making process more multifaceted and interpretative.
