Data visualisation research paper

I have found a July 2007 research paper on Data Visualisation from the Australian Bureau of Statistics particularly interesting. The key part of the paper is in the section on “Applications of Data Visualisation” (click fourth from bottom on the left-hand list).

It analyses existing data visualisation tools and techniques, covering dashboards, sparklines, search clouds, mindmap searching and treemaps, as well as Gapminder and Nationmaster. Also covered are stories created through user input and improving static two-dimensional graphs.
