Čyras and Lachmayer: Towards Multidimensional Rule Visualizations

Professor Dr. Vytautas Čyras of Vilnius University, and Professor Dr. Friedrich Lachmayer of the University of Innsbruck, presented a paper entitled Towards Multidimensional Rule Visualizations, 27-29 September 2013, at Rules 2013 in Krakow.

Here is the abstract:

This paper reviews visualizations in legal informatics. We focus on the transition from traditional rule-based linear textual representation such as “if A then B” to two- and three-dimensional ones and films. A methodology of visualization with the thought pattern of tertium comparationis can be attributed to Arthur Kaufmann. A tertium visualization aims at a mental bridge between different languages. We explore how visualizations are constructed and what types can be found here. Review criteria comprise comprehension, relations, vertical-horizontal arrangement, time-space structure, the focus of attention, education, etc. Pictures for review are selected from JURIX 2012 proceedings. We conclude that making visualizations as avant-garde as JURIX projects themselves is a tough task that requires knowledge of law, informatics, media and semiotics.
