Visual analysis aims for supporting the verification or falsification of given hypotheses about a dataset visually. This means that users perform a directed search for information. A high degree of interactivity is required here as well. Since hypotheses are given a priori visual analysis techniques should be able to guide the users during the search process. Visual analysis techniques are often tailored to one certain analysis problem (i.e., a limited set of hypotheses).
