Abstract: 

Widespread availability of desk-top computing allows psychologists to manipulate complex multivariate datasets. While researchers in the physical and engineering sciences have dealt with increasing data complexity by using scientific visualization, reseearchers in the behavioral sciences have been slower to adopt these tools (Butler, 1993). To address this descrepancy, this paper defines scientific visualization, presents a theoretical framework for understanding visulaization, and reviews a number of multivariable visualization techniques in light of this framework.
