The rapidly growing amount, availability and complexity of information pose great chances for a more holistic understanding of yet undiscovered interdependencies within systems and disciplines. Recent developments show that areas such as economics and trading, legislation, planning and design need new techniques for assessments and risk management. Quite often it is hard to predict and to communicate what effects certain sanctions will have – or even why they are particularly selected as a part of an action plan. The importance to clearly visualize and communicate system effects present an incontestable value – especially if combined with instant and interactive techniques, which stimulate a fruitful exchange between disciplines. Interdisciplinary questions drive evermore cooperation and analytical work in teams. Since each discipline provides its personal visual and textual languages these barriers have to be overcome when it comes to true cooperation. Enhanced – while still being generic – techniques for supporting and managing cooperative processes need to be found.
