Gourmet dishes are made of many different ingredients. We can enjoy them as finished dishes, but we don’t exactly know what’s in them and how they are prepared. Like a gourmet dish, Data Visualization is a gourmet subject. “What is this gourmet subject made of?” and “How is a digital gourmet object created?” are still largely unknown questions for many people. In the information age today, we are experiencing cloud of data from a variety of sources and in a variety of formats. How educational programming for Data Visualization can be adequately developed to meet such challenges is still one of the widely discussed topics today for both online and in-classroom instruction. This paper describes a newly established concept model based on the taxonomy of data visualization. The domains, scopes, and strategies of educational programming for Data Visualization are described and discussed.
