Defining: da·ta
vi·su·al·i·za·tion
“Data visualizations are visual displays of measured quantities
by means of the combined use of a coordination system, points,
lines, shapes, digits, letters quantified by visual attributes.They
are general, context-free and often times created automatically.”

Defining: in·ter·ac·tiv·ity
“Providing output based on input from the user. This output
feeds back into the user's decision process for subsequent
interaction.
Implying that the user of the software can exert some control
over the software, and not just be a passive page-turner
recipient.”
•
Can this be done in other media?
NO! Only Web
