Visualization is an important weapon in the management and control of the vast flood of data now generated. In order to be effective and useful it is important that such visualizations are designed to accommodate the variabilities of the tasks to which they will be put, and for the data they will be expected to be able to display. Such a view necessarily means that not all visualizations are always applicable. To this end, work has been done on visualizing software and systems with the aim of creating intelligence amplifying tools that aid, rather than try to replace the user and his intuition and domain knowledge.
