ABSTRACT
<p>Diagrams are essential in documenting large information systems. A diagram provides a mapping from the problem domain to the visual representation by supporting cognitive processes that involve perceptual pattern finding and cognitive symbolic operations. Using structured object recognition, the authors map problem semantics to 3D diagram structures, which makes the diagram easier to read with minimal training.</p>
