“It’s a lot easier to examine visual images than it is to wade through numbers or statistics.

If there’s a problem with the way the code or numerical parameters were set up, it’s much faster to spot these anomalies visually than by printing out rows and rows of numbers.”

– Dr. Jackqueline Chen, Sandia National Laboratories (read the case study)
