The Many-Faced Plot:Strategy for Automatic Glyph



Despite some authors stating that data-relatedness helps interpretation, glyphs are often used unrelated to the represented data. In order to automatically produce data-related glyphs, a large visual repository is required, as well as, image structure suitable for data representation. In this paper, we propose a strategy that fulfills the two requirements and allows the production of glyphs related to the data thematic (literal and metaphorical). We compare used approach with current glyph techniques and discuss the results.
