First time contributor to this list (and thread) …
Can’t comment on the specifics here (below), but have some longstanding experience with the general phenomenon.
Many times, in an inter-disciplinary project, I have created, or helped create, a representation of data - whether a table (as below), a graphical representation/visualization, or a project-specific data browser.
Initially, it is met with skepticism, criticism, or outright hostility, but over time it can become the cognitive model of whatever the data is describing. Can’t emphasize this enough - data representations can become a cognitive model for an inter-disciplinary group.
Thus, as much care as is practical should be spent on the creation of such representations as, once displayed to your colleagues, they may have consequences beyond anything intended.
And, of course, that’s the good news.
