Great stuff, Greg - thanks!

Yes, I'd totally forgotten about the term informatics. And bioinformatics too, in this industry.

Very interesting. And Lol the meat pig! :)

Thanks again,

Steve

PS - I like your definition of Data Visualization.

We'd call the whole thing Informatics, but that trends more towards the tools that facilitates the process.

The work your person is doing is Data Analysis and the person doing the work would most certainly be a Data Analyst.

The resultant charts, graphs, & such, would certainly be called Data Visualization.

I teach a course in data analysis and visualization focused on our tools that can take just about any SAS data source and create user configurable charts, graphs and maps. In the class we define data visualization as any means of presenting complex data in a way that makes it easily understood by the recipient whether that's a paper graph, infographic, hand drawn chart, dynamic application consuming live data feeds (think Mozilla Glow), or even a meat pig http://goo.gl/5XOR9).

Cheers!
