3D InfoVis is Here to Stay

3D information visualization has existed for more than 100 years. 3D offers intrinsic attributes such as an extra dimension for encoding position and length, meshes and surfaces; lighting and separation. Further 3D can aid mental models for configuration of data within a 3D spatial framework. Perceived issues with 3D are solvable and successful, specialized information visualizations can be built.
