19. 19. decoration help people ‘decorate’ a visualization to better communicate its relevance and context
20. 20. decoration
21. 21. tweakability instead of making the visualization a snapshot, make it an interface that lets a user playfully explore the data.
22. 22. tweakability
23. 23. annotation let people annotate the visualization in a consistent and coherent manner
24. 24. annotation
25. 25. snapshot let people store and retrieve conﬁgurations of an interactive visualization
26. 26. snapshot
