Three Layers of Complexity

reading off
particular data
from points on the table or graph (easy)
selecting sections
of relevant data from complex data sets (more complex)
identifying and
interpreting patterns
within different types of data (most complex).

Gott and Duggan (2003)
Interpreting Graphs
"the ability to interpret, negotiate, and make meaning from information presented in the form of an image. Visual literacy is based on the idea that pictures can be “read” and that meaning can be communicated through a process of reading."
