Visual computing involves theory, methods and application of enhancing the visual space, along with human interaction, within the field of computing. One may visualize unstructured data, simple information structures, and more complicated structures such as automata, programs, and databases. Moreover, visual computing is a field that involves the representation or modeling of artifacts and their behaviors or executions. Thus, it is possible to visualize heaps, their execution or entire programs in which the heap plays an algorithmic role. The ways in which the human interacts with the heap through pure visualization, touch, or sound becomes a relevant issue. The concept of transformation is integral to visual computing, where it is often convenient to transform one type of object into another, sometimes for a specific group or individual.
