Perceptual theory has much to tell us about effective flow visualization. Since visualization is a practical tool, a meaningful theory must be constructive–not just descriptive–leading to better data representations. The author contend that such a useful body of theory exists and though it might be incomplete it still can be useful. Major gaps in the theory provide promising avenues for future research in a multidisciplinary program that can benefit both the human perception field and the applied science of data visualization.
