Data Visualization in qualitative research

Data visualization cannot be reduced to any form or content. Nevertheless the state of the art of visualization tools in research (mostly in an academic environment) can be broadly summarized by their output conditions, namely ‘static’, ‘interactive,’ and ‘dynamic’.
