Vista is a knowledge-based system that helps scientists design visualization techniques. It generates a technique for a given data set and lets users modify the design interactively using a compositional design methodology. To ensure the effectiveness of its designs, Vista uses many rules, mostly heuristic in nature, that were acquired through literature surveys and discussions with visualization experts. In general, Vista's design was based on research in graphical perception. It extends the design methodology of Automatic Presentation Tool (APT) (J.D. Mckinlay, 1986), a presentation tool for 2D graphics, to three dimensions. While Vista's primary function is to automatically generate an effective visualization technique design for a given data set, it also allows users to interactively modify this design and renders the resulting image using a variety of rendering algorithms.<>
