CoolInfographics points us to this great venn-diagram style visualization of the many aspects of data visualization, bringing to mind the earlier discussion of the difference between infographics and datavis.

As data visualization is still new, we find ourselves explaining what it is rather often. We sat down and thought of a diagram we could show to people confused by what we do.

In essence, data visualization is a new pluri-disciplinary domain, where different expertises blend and overlap — it mixes different perspectives, and that is what we wanted to represent.

Infographics seem to be firmly in the upper center region, while I (a visualization scientist) operate just to the lower-left of center.  What about you?
