Based on situation awareness theory, this paper discusses the relationships between situation awareness and visualization, then a visualization awareness model is constructed. The model consists of 5 stages, including situation awareness requirements analysis, extraction of data and knowledge, situation visualization & interaction, situation awareness, and decision making & enforcement. At last, the key problems of visualization awareness are presented.

Key wordsInformation visualization      Situation awareness      Visualization awareness      Visualization model
