In this paper, we describe the effort of defining and com piling existing visualization methods in order to develop a systematic overview based on the logic, look, and use of the periodic table of elements. We first describe the cur rent fragmented state of the visualization field. Then we outline the rules and criteria we applied in conducting our research in order to present a revised periodic table of 100 visualization methods with a proposition how to use it.
