The goal of the paper is to explicate some common formal logic underlying various notational systems used in visual modeling. The idea is to treat the notational diversity as the diversity of visualizations of the same basic specificational format. It is argued that the task can be well approached in the arrow-diagramlogic framework where specifications are directed graphs carrying a structure of diagrampre dicates and operations.
