View is looking at the data. You could say html is one way of viewing the data, anything that can be understood by a person that is on the screen is a view. View change would ( I think ) imply that it is time to refresh the screen.
View is the "displaying" or "presentation" aspect of an application whose one and only job is to display the contents given to it. It really does NOT care from where and how the data it displays is obtained.
It is for achieving the "loose coupling" between different components so that maintenance would be easy!
