14:10-15:50 Keynote (Chair: Gerik Scheuermann) Colin Ware Human Perception and Visual Thinking Tools for Environmental Science Visualizations are cognitive support tools. They take advantage of human pattern perception, support working memory and help with cognitive model building. Lessons for cognitive tool building will be developed with three examples relating to the environment. The first is a tool for analyzing a marine food web, it informs the need to design so that the inner workings of a model can be understood. The second is visualization software for analyzing the behavior of tagged marine mammals. Its design was informed by studies of visual working memory. The third is a model of seaweed architecture, with lessons for mental model building and the role of visualization in explanation.
