The purpose of this category[edit]

The purpose of this category is mentioned both in the intro of this category and in the Wikipedia article. This purpose is the new field of science:

  • ... are visual representations of large-scale collections of non-numerical information, such as files and lines of code in software systems library and bibliographic databases, networks of relations on the internet, and so forth.
  • ... and NOT visualisation of information in general, and an other visualization top category: such as the category visualization and category information graphics.

Now this is why I oppose the adding of the categories Charts, Diagrams, Graphics, Graphs, Schemas, Maps and Technical drawing here. If you read the Wikipedia article you understand what I mean.

Now if WikipediaMaster wants to change the purpose of this category I suggest, he first changes the scope of the Wikipedia article. Untill then I like to keep this category a specialized one. -- Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 21:24, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
