F121 Visualization

 The Swiss Society of History&Informatic proposes a call for paper in visualization :  http://blog.ahc-ch.ch/?p=1128 (German) http://blog.ahc-ch.ch/?p=1133&lang=fr (French)
 Questionning the order of paragraphs in the call, why to put visualization before methodology ?
 Visualization: what’s the difference between “technic” and “method” ? Scholars are not supposed to talk about technic, but in fact if we don’t masterize the technic, it’s not possible to elaborate methods.
 distinction: visualization as a means of exploration — visualization as a means of communication — blended: visualization as a means to allow exploration (visual online application)
 exploration: the possibility to dive into the data (–> qualitative analysis) right from the visualization is very desirable
 (good) visualizations allow engagement with the public, create publicity
