Visit www.panopticon.com Visual data analysis with treemaps - brain and mind Preattentive processing is the innate, natural skill put to use with treemaps. When first looking at a treemap you will be able to point out important values in a matter of seconds. However, what most people are unaware of is that your brain processes the information before your mind becomes aware of it. For the brain, it is not a question of seconds, but milliseconds. Scientists call this preattentive processing. It is defined as involuntary processing of visual information without focused attention in a very short time - as fast as 200 milliseconds. This automated and effortless perception of information is what visualisation tools such as treemaps make use of. A picture really does say more than a thousand words.
