Collected sources for the different types of visualizations used in the field of polarization imaging are not extensive. Here, we survey and review the different visualization techniques in passive polarimetric imaging. Analysis of the methods is done by applying various concepts from the field of visualization. We provide recommendations for choosing a visualization based on the data structure, spatial frequency, and analysis goals.
