Users of information systems in time-critical domains are under constant pressure to digest and process information that is vital for their task. Thus, the user needs efficient information visualization that avoids displaying information that is not vital at the moment. Decision-Centered Visualization is an adaptive, interactive visualization system that supports decision making by integrating domain knowledge and knowledge about human decision making with an interactive visualization architecture. An important facet of this system is the representation of the underlying domain knowledge. We will first describe the main modules and the main structures of the knowledge representation of the DCV system. We then describe how DCV uses the represented domain knowledge to guide the information visualization in time-critical applications.
