A few days ago I learned a new scientific word: viture. It appears in this article co-written by a colleague of mine from NTNU. Viture is defined as follows:

A viture is similar to a feature; it comprises methods for data processing, but additionally, it includes a corresponding visualization method. The goal of a viture is to process raw data and visualize the result such that investigated movement patterns are well represented.

After a few searches in Google Scholar I haven’t come across anyone else using the word, but will look around a bit more.
