Spatial Representation Tools

Spatial Representation Tools

Like all the visualization processes, computer-based communication systems are also available in the market that help in making accurate representations using two-dimensional cognitive spaces.

Some representations use spatial proximity to bring a relation between objects in the space and others are used by people in the Marketing & Design departments as “Mood Boards”, which collect images as metaphors and reflect the quality of the products.

Spatial Information Systems

Spatial Information Systems are designed to enhance creative visualization by mapping text objects, design requirements, etc. in two-dimensional planes and then using knowledge processing tools to provide a statistical analysis of available data.


Users are also given the option to select an area of this space and to create a new space from the Principal Components Analysis. For example, these systems can be used to browse various research papers to find the occurrence of a certain keyword and to use Principal Components Analysis to display the keywords and their mutual relationship on a common twodimensional space.

Spatial Hypertext Systems

Spatial Hypertext Systems help in finding of alternative structures for applications and their content in those cases where the domain doesn’t have any fixed or well-defined structure in the beginning; or is flexible enough to change during the task. In Spatial Hypertext Systems, the links between nodes are expressed by connecting them through connectors and pin structures.

Nodes may also be displayed under different contexts, when there are multiple spatial references that connect to the same underlying content. The users can use a window as a workspace in which they can organize their thoughts and different ideas. The nodes are displayed on a two-dimensional space and represent links to familiar objects such as −

  • Documents
  • Images
  • Comments and
  • Hypertext Pages

Creativity processes are implemented constantly by many big companies in private and public sector organizations. It is prevalent in sectors where people management plays a huge role, some of these sectors are −

  • Manufacturing
  • Services
  • Banking
  • Construction Industry
  • Big car manufacturing firms
  • Software development firms
  • Railroad industries
  • Pharmaceutical firms, etc.

All the above-mentioned industries use creativity experts to teach their employees new techniques to increase their efficiency and quality of output.

Creativity uses a generation of ideas with value to combine various features from them and create a new path to solve concrete problems. This helps people in adapting to change, while still improving the performance of the organization. Creative thinking encourages participation in crucial decisions which immediately changes the attitude of the staff of the organization in a positive direction.
