The new find, in a limestone fossil bed in NE Brazil, corrects the mistaken classification of another fossil of this type and reveals that the genus has undergone very little evolutionary change since the Early Cretaceous Period.
How To Think Visually Using Visual AnalogiesVisual analogy is a powerful problem solving strategy that can help explain new and non-routine problems in terms of familiar ones. To date, however, few researches have given enough attention to visual analogy and visual displays in design contexts.Here is classification that helps me to solve non-routine information design problems while using familiar knowledge structures.
