IRIS is a prototype system supporting visual analysis of spatially referenced data. IRIS automatically produces high-quality thematic maps for statistical data selected by the user. The system applies generic knowledge about how to best combine and present statistical data in thematic maps, encoded as heuristic rules, together with application-specific metadata about the statistical data, encoded using an object-oriented knowledge representation language.
