This paper presents the first design principles that optimize the visualization of sets using linear diagrams.
These principles are justified through empirical studies that ev...

—Clutter in a diagram can be broadly defined as how
visually complex the diagram is. It may be that different users
perceive clutter in different ways, however. Moreover, it h...

There are a range of diagram types that can be used to visualize
sets. However, there is a significant lack of insight into which is the
most effective visualization. To addre...
