Summaries
Back Cover Copy
Since the beginning of the computer age, researchers from many disciplines have sought to facilitate people's use of computers and to provide ways for scientists to make sense of the immense quantities of data coming out of them. One gainful result of these efforts has been the field of information visualization, whose technology is increasingly applied in scientific research, digital libraries, data mining, financial data analysis, market studies, manufacturing production control, and data discovery. This book collects 38 of the key papers on information visualization from a leading and prominent research lab, the University of Maryland's Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL). Celebrating HCIL's 20th anniversary, this book presents a coherent body of work from a respected community that has had many success stories with its research and commercial spin-offs. Each chapter contains an introduction specifically written for this volume by two leading HCI researchers, to describe the connections among those papers and reveal HCIL's individual approach to developing innovations. Features: ·Contains cutting-edge research of interest to professionals, researchers, educators, and students in all areas of information visualization ·Covers topics such as dynamic queries, zooming strategies, animation, hierarchical data, and emerging theories; and applications such as image libraries, children's digital libraries, and genomic data ·Web enhanced with additional images, clickable indexes, and links to courses, more papers, and other information visualization Web sites at www.mkp.com/craft
