Assessing the functions and dimensions of visualizations in foresight
Müller, Adrian W.; (2016). Assessing the functions and dimensions of visualizations in foresight. Foresight, 18, 01. 76-90. Peer reviewed.
A central question in foresight exercises is how to communicate the derived results.
By drawing on an empirical study this article presents a framework for using visualizations in foresight and illustrates its application by referring to a case study.
The argument is made that by using a dimensional framework the effects of visualization can be leveraged for communicating foresight results and creating stronger buy-in.
While visualizations appear to be a central means of communication and engagement, little is known in the context of foresight on the functions and dimension of visualizations.
