Visual Analytics describes the art and science of analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visual interfaces. The goal of Visual Analytics is to stimulate analytical insight from massive, dynamic, ambiguous, and often conflicting information; to detect the expected and to discover the unexpected; and to yield timely assessments with evidence and confidence levels. Visual analytic interfaces are based on cognitive and perceptual principles to support human information discourse using innovative interactive techniques and visual representations : http://www.smartgraphics.org/sg05/smartgraphics.html
