Glyph Placement Issues

data-driven (e.g., based on two data dimensions) vs. structure-driven (e.g., based on an explicit or implicit order or other relationship between data points)

Overlaps vs. non-overlaps

optimized screen utilization (e.g., space-filling algorithms) vs. use of white space to reinforce distances

Distortion vs. precision
