  1. 1. this map by Charles Joseph Minard portrays the losses suffered by Napoleon's army in the Russian campaign of 1812. Beginning at the Polish-Russian border, the thick band shows the size of the army at each position. The path of Napoleon's retreat from Moscow in the bitterly cold winter is depicted by the dark lower band, which is tied to temperature and time scales

  3. 3. Graphical Perception Some Considerations <ul><li>Some visual processing takes place without any conscious effort on our part </li></ul><ul><li>This is termed preattentive vision . </li></ul><ul><li>Graphical perception derives from preattentive vision to extract information from graphs </li></ul><ul><li>Graphs which convey their information at this unconscious level allow us to extract the information without any considered effort on our part. </li></ul>
