1. (Tufte) Tufte associates six types of information with Minard's map: army size, position (in two dimensions), direction, temperature, time. What other information do you think could be included? How would these be represented visually? What would the trade off be between that which was represented and the clarity of the message?

2. (Tufte) How does the graphic layout of Minard's map relate to the message he is trying to convey? How could the layout of the map change to accommodate a different design intent? u

3. (Arnheim) Why is it important to differentiate between central and peripheral attributes? Is it possible for peripheral attributes to be generative?
