What if we are visualizing something else? (i.e. waveforms, etc.) I see that most questions in visualization are not like this, but this is a slightly different concept. –  Gaffi Jul 12 '12 at 13:58
I suppose it depends how broad your interpretation of "data" is :) I'd certainly extend it to waveforms, the data in their case (as in many other cases) being a collection of samples. –  shambulator Jul 12 '12 at 14:01
True. I guess in my head I was separating out static vs. dynamic/live visualization, but that was silly of me. I rescind my comment. –  Gaffi Jul 12 '12 at 14:07
