> Why is it desirable to 'rescue' diagrams in cartesian coordinates in the age of big data? They're much easier to read than tables, so they're perfect for the experimenter during measurements of any kind. And they are the perfect basis for discussion among scientists: when you get lost in words and arguments you can always come back to the diagram. They're familiar to all practitioners of natural sciences, which allows easy communication across disparate fields. And, lastly, they are perfect for expressing mathematical relations without resorting to arithmetic with heaps of formulas (something many biologists prefer ).
