an increasing need for effective methods of gaining insight into
associated and underlying information. We need methods for visualizing
information to support rapid learning and accurate decision making. The

using real world examples besides life sciences and medical applications
of computer generated interactive information visualization methods.
Information visualization deals with the representation and presentation
of concepts and data in a meaningful way. Depending on the medium used,
