Although visualization is a provent technology for communicating complex and/or voluminous information, one significant problem is its inability to display information describing data uncertainty. This deficiency has negative on analyzing or assessing data, since the integrity or quality of data is vital for good decision making. There is a need to develop good visualization technologies capable of representing, processing, and displaying uncertainty. Such technology would improve the overall decision making process because the quality of data would be taken into account, not just its expected value.The objective of this proposal is to develop a flexible, general system and set of components from which to build specialized vusualization applications with the ability to visualize data uncertainty. The system is adaptable to a variety of data sources, supports the creation of novel techniques and algorithms, and enables combinations of these techniques to create new displays and applications. Such a framework is necessary to support the variety of data encountered in general application and to allow custom applications to be constructed from the components of the system.
