Conflicting Standards for Designing Data Displays: Following, Flouting, and Reconciling Them.
Kostelnick, Charles
Technical Communication: Journal of the Society for Technical Communication, v45 n4 p473-82 Nov 1998
Describes how data displays can be classified into four types: conventional, perceptual, informational, and aesthetic. Argues that conflicts among the standards can be resolved by allowing the rhetorical situation to guide the design process. Explores a case in information design to show how the rhetorical situation shapes data displays, telling technical communicators when to follow, blend, or flout standards. (SR)
