Information Visualization is the use of computer-supported interactive visual representations of abstract data to amplify cognition. Whereas scientific visualization usually starts with a natural physical representation, Information Visualization applies visual processing to abstract information. Hence, despite the fact that scientific visualization is an older domain of knowledge, it is logically subordinated to Information Visualization.
