Ontological Imaging [O-I] with Case Studies
In this paper we inaugurate the shaping of a new Imaging field, that of Ontological Imaging, in order to diversify the families of images which are dedicated to convey semantic content. The images of this area can be characterized as ontological, in distinction to images characterized by the term ’artistic’ (in a broader sense). The space of applications regarding Ontological Imaging seems to be inexhaustible. Thus we cite herein two broad areas of applications, that is: (a) imaging of mathematical entities and (b) sub-visual imaging of processes. We give also two significant case studies, regarding the previous areas: (a) imaging of real numbers and (b) imaging of mathematical constants.
