Abstract

Abstract

Animated graphics are a potentially powerful way to communicate information about subject matter involving change over time. However, their design currently relies largely on intuition and approaches applicable to static graphics. This article introduces a principled and empirically validated alternative that offers significantly better communicative effectiveness than conventional animation designs.
