They are taxonomies of the information visualisations studied in infoviz, rather than a taxonomy of the field, but they are at least a starting point.

Section headings from the Proceedings of the 11th International Conference Information Visualization (IV '07)
I think these work better than the section headings from 'using vision to think' for instance, as they are centered on research practice, rather than trying to present a unified view of the field.

 The ACM Computing Classification System (1998)
Has little to say on information visualisation; but does show how one might be constructed. (ACM reserves all rights - so don't copy/paste.)

 Very interesting work
It is great that you are thinking about how the field of information visualization can be described via a taxonomy! It would be very handy to have such a taxonomy which might also ease my current struggling when using ACM's or other's taxonomies to categorize research papers in the field.

I have given it a page:[Draft taxonomy], Linked from [Taxonomy].
What other (apart from ACMCCS) taxonomies/classification systems do you use?
Spdegabrielle 14:11, 5 November 2007 (CET)
What comes here to my mind are for example the different classification schemes that libraries use.

LCSH has about five Information Visualization entries, with only one narrower term 'software visualization'
SOURCE OF HEADINGS: Library of Congress Online Catalog YOU SEARCHED: Subject Authority Headings = Information visualization Information visualization Information visualization Case studies. Information visualization Congresses. Information visualization Data processing. Information visualization Handbooks, manuals, etc. Information visualization Periodicals. Information visualization Psychological aspects. Information visualization Software. INFORMATION FOR: Information visualization Narrower Term: Software visualization See Also: Visual analytics INFORMATION FOR: Software visualization Narrower Term: Computational steering (Computer science)
Another interesting exercise would be to look at a collection of papers, and see what keywords the authors assign.

It'd be great to give it a higher profile. Spdegabrielle 12:13, 10 March 2008 (CET)
 taxonomy alternatives
It might be a crazy idea, but it seems a taxonomy is a retrieval instrument whose earliest recorded use/invention dates back to the Sumerian (approx. Iraq).
In some ways it is the earliest Infovis instrument!
Can we do better?
