        The project to date has worked toward visualizing the quantitative data elements of a system. The image above shows the current data values for five separate elements in a hypothetical composition. In this example, each element is represented as a sphere and has three values associated with it. These values are presented as the x-coordinate, z-coordinate, and the size of each sphere. The color communicates the potential energy for the increase of a value according to the system definition. The spherical representation proved problematic so another form, the pipe, was chosen. Using the height, and interior/exterior radius values for the presentation of the data, the state of the system could be quickly and accurately determined. The addition of the matrix element was added as a holistic visualization of the system.
