A data view is a data structure or visual representation of data that differs from physical data. Views are often created to make information more relevant, readable and interesting for human consumption. For example, the comments on an article may be sorted by factors such as the reputation of the contributor or rankings of the comments by users. This adds value to a website as unhelpful or spam comments may be hidden while thoughtful commentary rises to the top.
A view is virtual in nature and differs from the structure and content of data repositories. For example, low quality comments may be stored in a data repository but may never show up in a view for users.
