Product description

From Amazon

This collection of classic and ground-breaking papers explores the issues involved in information visualization--thought versus perception, mental process versus graphic representation. In Readings in Information Visualization: Using Vision to Think, visualization is defined as "the use of computer-supported, interactive, visual representations of data to amplify cognition."

The papers are organized into the categories of "Space," "Interaction," "Focus + Context," "Data Mapping: Document Visualization," "Infosphere, Workspace, Tools, and Objects," and "Using Vision to Think." Subcategories are divided into the following:

  • 1-D, 2-D, and 3-D structures
  • Multiple dimensions
  • Trees
  • Networks
  • Dynamic queries
  • Interactive analysis
  • Fisheye views
  • Alternate geometry
  • Text in various dimensions
  • The Internet
  • Information workspaces
  • Visually enhanced objects
Discussions of the applications for and implications of visualization processes complete the book. Readings in Information Visualization: Using Vision to Think is targeted at research professionals in academia and industry; students new to the field; and professionals in statistics, information design, and medicine. The papers should be of particular interest to specialists in any area in which discovering the relationships between data and its visual representation is critical. --Kathleen Caster
