First fully integrated book on Interactive Visualisation
Provides an overview of advanced visualisation algorithms and methods
Discusses principles for choosing appropriate display systems and input/output devices
Explores strategies for design and evaluation of interactive visualisation and exploration tools
Presents successful case studies using virtual and augmented reality technologies
This unique, multi-disciplinary volume provides an insight into an active and vital area of research – Interactive Visualization. Interactive Visualization enables the development of new scientific techniques to view data, and to use interaction capabilities to interrogate and navigate through datasets and better communicate the results.
A wide range of topics are covered in this important new book, representing the state of the art in this research area and providing a special emphasis on:
• Advanced data representation;
• Integration of visualization and modelling techniques;
• Novel user interfaces for data exploration and analysis;
• Virtual environments and collaborative visualization;
• Design and evaluation of interactive visualization tools and systems.
Students and researchers in scientific and information visualization, virtual reality, human-computer interaction, interface and interaction design, computer graphics and multimedia will find the book an excellent survey of this exciting field.
